The Splash You Make Can Touch the World

by Jamie Sams

My Cherokee grandpa taught me this lesson when I was seven.  He took me to a fishing hole and asked me to throw a rock into the pond.  He asked me what I saw, and I replied that I saw a splash.  He asked me what else I saw, and I said a circle of water and another circle and another circle.  He then told me that every person was responsible for the kind of splash they made in the world and that the splash would touch many other circles, creating a ripple effect.  I sat there and watched the water until he asked me to notice the muddy bank where we were sitting.  He pointed out that one of the circular waves made by my rock was lapping at my feet, having found its way back to me.  Then he told me that we all need to be careful of the kinds of splashes we make in the world, because the waves we create will always come back to us.  If those splashes were hurtful, we will not welcome them back, but if the splash and the waves were made from goodness, we will be happy to see them come home.

Once More

When the world says,
                           "Give up,"


                                                          Hope whispers,
                                                                          "Try it one more time."

Be The Ruler of Your Destiny


The Sun Shrouds Over the Moon
Buried in the cold, forlorn darkness,
Not even the moon’s rays could reach me.
Only icy dew condensed on my body.
A star I had not seen before wandered near me.
As if caressing my fatigued soul, she whispered to me:

If this world could be awakened and turned around, then light up this entire darkness.
Set yourself ablaze to become the source of radiance in this harsh world that has locked up the Sun for ages and eons.

If this is my mission, then let it be fulfilled.
If this world could be awakened and turned around, then light up this entire darkness.
Set yourself ablaze to become the source of radiance in this harsh world that has locked up the Sun for ages and eons. 

- OST from award-winning historical drama "The Great Queen Seondeok"


BE. THE. CHANGE. YOU. WANT. TO. SEE. IN. THE. WORLD.

成为命运的主人

遮天闭月
隐藏在寒峭的黑暗中的我
就是月光也无法照及,
唯有冰冷的露珠凝结在我身上。
有一颗不曾见过的星星向我走近,
宛若抚慰我疲惫的心灵一般轻声说道:

如果这世间能够被唤醒和扭转,就让这一切黑暗明亮起来吧。
燃烧自己、成为漫长岁月里封锁住太阳的这残酷世界的光亮吧。

如果这条道路是我的使命的话,那便成就它吧。
如果这世间能够被唤醒和扭转,就让这一切黑暗明亮起来吧。
燃烧自己、成为漫长岁月里封锁住太阳的这残酷世界的光亮吧。

——长篇古装剧《善德女王》插曲

Silent Night

Not a sigh

Not a tear

Nothing to pardon and forgive
Nothing to keep in one's bosom

In this vast world
and the boundless universe out there

all that last till eternity...

...are but
             a sea of shimmering stars.
