I attended Hoya language school near the New York City for two months when I was six years old. I have so much beautiful and haunting memories about these days. I value those so much now and they become a source of my later reflection on life and identity.

I was also surprised at people’s eccentric appearance. I was particularly struck watching people with blonde hairs, blue eyes, and grand stature. I realized the existence of extraterrestrials. Before visiting the United States, I thought every person had black hairs and eyes and short height.

In spring in America, I had very delightful and mild weather. The good weather called my mind into the hilly small mountains and peaceful and extensive fields. I was captivated by America’s stillness. I could not imagine the being of the serene place when I was straitened by the tangled and uproarious environment in Seoul.
