“…It is always
that teaches me.
Nodding my head, I stand in the winter sea…”
THE WINTER SEA – KIM NAM-JO
Few lines of one of the most beautiful korean poetries, “The winter sea” written by Kim Nam-Jo in 1967. I chose this poetry to give you a portrait of an amazing girl I met in the International House. Her name is Eunau, she’s 23 and she was born in a little Island, Geoje Island, in South Korea.
“There is something in Wollongong that makes me remember my childhood in Geoje Island. Maybe the colour of the sand and the waves”, she confessed me.
That’s a portrait of her feelings towards Wollongong winter sea.
