This afternoon
while rummaging in the vast metropolis of my computer
in the neighbourhood of the suburban district of I-photo
I found this image

I came across this man
writing in the street of Seoul

He arrived with a roll of paper
and a small bucket of ink
unrolled his empty scroll, wrote upon it
and when finished left the writing in the street
picked up his ink bucket
and walked off

One of the daily surprises while writer in residence in Korea

'make your work movements as unhurried as caresses'
