And now, for a bit of positivity in this cesspool of terrible events.
Park Ji-young was a crew member of the sunken Sewol ferry. She lived with her single mother and younger sister, and was known to be a bright, smiling young lady.
When the ship began to sink, she took charge of the life jackets. When there wasn’t enough to go around, she grabbed life jackets from the fourth floor and gave them to the people on the third floor. When asked “aren’t you going to wear one too?” she replied “Crew members go last. I’ll leave after I’ve gotten all of you out.”
Her efforts saved everyone she helped. Unfortunately, she herself did not make it.
Rest in peace, Miss Park. You will be missed. Thank you.
Havsmannen(the man of the sea) is a handsome young man who can be found wandering along shores in misty weather. He would seek out a lonely sailor’s wife and transform himself into her husband, which often resulted in the wife giving birth to a green-skinned child with gills and fin-like feet. As an apology, Havsmannen would give the sailor good winds and calm seas, ensuring that his boat never ran aground.
Here’s a picture of my little friend Bort. He’s a mini lop and he likes wearing things on his ears, such as plastic cups, hair ties and socks! Sometimes he will find something on the floor, pick it up in his teeth and bring it to me to put on his ears!
