Today I took a day off. After last weeks episode, I realized that I needed a day alone with the Lord. So I spent the morning cleaning and baking, and headed out to Hongdae for some little time alone with God. I've written about Hongdae before; its the university area that I love. I've gone on "dates" before with the Lord, times where I went out to the beach in college to pray, etc. I knew it was gonna be a good day.. here I am about to leave the apartment, happy to go!
I chose to go to this little Italian bakery where I sipped on a lovely iced latte while I journaled, prayed, and studied Korean. It was awesome.
Then I headed to the park where during the fall they had live music on Saturdays. Sure enough, the spring has come and they began to host live music again. When I sat down, I immediately recognized the group as one of my favorites from last fall. I remember thinking that the lead singer has a Damien Rice quality to him. After the show, he came up to me out of nowhere and asked if I would put my name and email down on a list. I was surprised, but said yes. I told him that I remembered him from the fall and that he sounded like Damien Rice to me. Now HE was surprised. He said that Damien Rice was one of his favorite singers and he there began to sing "The Blower's Daughter", one of my favorites. We chatted for a bit and then I went on my way, very happy. Here is a little video of the group. This is one of his less Damien-esque songs, but I assure you, he's basically a Korean Damien Rice. :)
