2020 세계는? -2

 

                  Space Oddity 2020--looking around Korea, Rest of the world

 

                                                    조 중행

 

 

New conflict in Iran, Zionism, North Korea issue, China-US trade war, human

 

greed to environmental suicide, another industrial revolution ongoing,

 

decreasing happiness index both in US & Korea, and  the Moon clan in Blue

 

House--as  2020 dawns here in Korea, I see fundamental struggles continue

 

between countries, political parties, religions, and will continue.   

 

I feel helpless.

 

 

And yet, in the year 2020  like any years in the past, we will laugh, we weep, we

 

hope, we fear, we live, we love, we woo, (aka Ella W.Wilcox poem-1910). 

 

As for me,  live life as humanely as  possible,  hopefully not bring any tears-to any eye.

 

A new book is open. What would be in there for me , on Dec 31,2020?

 

Time will tell. And life goes on.

 

   
 

 

   
 

"This is Major Tom to Ground Control
 

I'm stepping through the door
 

And I'm floating in a most peculiar way
 

And the stars look very different today
 

For here
 

Am I sitting in a tin can

Far above the world

 

Planet Earth is blue
 

And there's nothing I can do

 

Though I'm past one hundred thousand miles

 

I'm feeling very still

 

And I think my spaceship knows which way to go

 

Tell my wife I love her very much she knows

----

                      In 1969--David Bowie(1947-2016)

 

 

 

---그러나

 

"산은 산대로 첩첩 쌓이고

 

물은 물대로 모여 가듯이

 

나무는 나무끼리

 

짐승은 짐승끼리

 

우리도 우리끼리

 

봄을 기다리며 살아가는 것이다."

--------신석정 의 대춘부(待春賦) 중에서

 

                      West  Eastern Divan  Orchestra  & Bareboim-Said Academy

 

 

 

                                 prepared by   J H Choh(class of  1969)
