Pak Sohye's Toraji Arirang Performed by Cho Hyeryŏng and the KBS Symphony Orchestra
For this blog's penultimate post, a pops rendition of one of the many versions of the "unofficial national anthem" of Korea, a country that has been my home for the past fourteen years, more than a third of my life. I offer my eternal gratitude to the Korean people for giving me a lovely wife, who has given me two lovely children, and for introducing me to Confucianism and convincing me of the truth of Catholicism.
Now, sustained by my family and these mutually reinforcing worldviews, I return to my homeland, not quite to the Village Of Orchard Park, NY, in which I was raised, but to the Village of Pittsford, some sixty miles to the East. Return here on the Feast of the Assumption (Marymass) for an announcement about the future of this blog. God bless.
