Temple Door



Not too many weeks ago, I was in Korea. On CNN and BBC, 24/7, was the constant news of impending war between North and South Korea. There was alarmist talk of troop movements and scary missile launches. It was clear that something WAS going to happen and happen soon. Foreigners were registering with their consulates in case they needed to be evacuated. I didn't get this same information when I tuned into the Korean news channel. The story didn't get nearly the same amount of intense coverage. In fact, they seemed quite subdued, as did the average person walking around the streets. On the plane back to the states, I read an article in The Economist. They said they had a reporter on the ground in Pyongyang and he didn't see anything out of the ordinary. He didn't see any soldiers preparing or any trucks or vehicles heading to the front. Nothing. I got the feeling that the news was really trying to sell this story so people would tune in to cable news 24/7 so they could sell you more toothpaste and deodorant, thus making the networks more money. The so-called Korean War was a good hook and they were going to play it for what it was worth. Then the Boston bombing happened and all of a sudden the Korean thing disappeared. Gone, poof. I haven't heard a peep since. What happened to this big invasion that was coming at any minute. I don't trust the news for anything.

This is my next installment for the Jogyesa Temple calender. All the doors of the Temple are filled with gorgeous wood carvings. Everything is hand painted with beautiful designs. I did this as a close-up detail. I'm always drawing the big picture but I hardly ever get up close and personal. This time I did.
