Although this is only my second journal post so far this year, I have not been completely idle. In fact, on most days I do spend time working on something Liminality-related. It just so happens that most of this stuff doesn’t end up on the front page, or isn’t quite ready for prime time yet.
Anyway, for those of you who only drop by the front page (does anyone even use the RSS feed anymore?), you may not have noticed that I have been slowly but surely posting photos in the Imagery section for the past few months. Right now there are four new galleries covering our trip to the States last year. I started with a collection of photos taken in New York on three separate days, then followed that up with photos from a three-day trip we took to Cape Cod with my parents. The third gallery consisted primarily of photos taken at my parents’ place over the course of our stay, and the last gallery—which contains more photos than the three other galleries combined—chronicles our six-day stay in Hawaii. I just finished and posted the Hawaii gallery last night; it’s been pretty cold here lately (with the exception of a freak, and brief, warm spell on Wednesday), so it was nice to look at photos of a warm place.
There will be more content coming at some unspecified point in the future, although most of this content will take the form of travel journals to places we have visited over the past few years or so: Taiwan, China, Cambodia, New Zealand, and Japan. I started keeping travel journals again during our trip to Taiwan, when my camera broke and I decided that I would keep a written record of the journey instead. Needless to say, it takes a long time to transcribe and edit these journals, and by the time I’ve transcribed and cleaned up one journal, we’ve usually already taken another trip. The journal for our Cambodia trip has been fully transcribed, but I’ve yet to get around to choosing the photos to illustrate it. All of the New Zealand journal is written, but there’s still a bit left to be transcribed. For our Japan trip, instead of keeping a detailed journal every day—there just wasn’t enough time—I instead wrote detailed notes whenever I could to allow me to, with the help of the photographic record, write a more detailed journal later on. (I actually did this with most of the New Zealand journal as well, and I was able to write quite a detailed account despite only getting to it months after returning to Korea.) With the US photos all posted now, writing out the Japan journal will be my next project.
So, anyway, that’s the state of things around here. And with the new semester starting up next week, I wouldn’t expect major content soon. But it is coming. For now, I hope you enjoy the photos.
