Contained in this book are his insights on daily life gained from going back and forth between metropolitan city and countryside. His stories are light and compact, reflecting the simple and ordinary life he leads, such as boiling water for tea on a rainy day and making kimchi with the cabbages he has grown. However, his stories of these moments are insightful and vivid. Though seemingly rather simple and concise, they somehow quietly touch the heart and offer you repose and a sense of wisdom about life.
