또 한 주의 주말을 보내면서 살짝 하루를 정리해본다. 역시나 오늘도 사진첩을 뒤적거린다. 그러면서도 다음 여행은 언제일까하는 의문은 항상 꼬리를 물고 이어지는데 이 질문은 코인가격을 보면서 결정하기로 해본다.
스위스에 와서는 가장 힐링이 되었던 곳이 바로 융프라우이다. 말문이 막히게 만들었던 정상에서의 절경이 평생에 남을 기억이 되었지만, 역시나 스위스 자체가 보석같은 자연을 가진 나라라는게 가장 여행의 포인트였을 것이다.
우리나라에도 멋진 경관을 가진 자연이 있지만 아무래도 그 분위기가 다르다보니 더욱 신기하고 부럽게 느껴졌는지도 모른다. 융프라우에 오르려면 산악열차를 타고 중간에 환승하는 과정을 거치는데 다음 기차를 기다리면서 만난 스키장은 우리의 북적거리는 현대적인 시설의 그것과 너무나도 달랐다.
산악열차에 오르고 내리는 사람들은 가방도 없고 거저 스키복에 자신의 스키만을 들고 탔다. 그리고는 기차에서 내려 바로 스키를 타고 스키장 안으로 들어가 사라져버렸다. '아. 이들에게는 그냥 이런게 생활이구나.' 나중에 융프라우 꼭대기를 구경하고는 내려가는 환승열차에서도 수 많은 동네 스키어(?)들을 만났다. 부러우면 지는건데 그냥 바로 납작 엎드리게 만들어버린다.
유럽을 여행하면서는 이방인으로서 비싼 물가에 그저 놀라면서 부자나라니 그러려니 하지만 우리도 이제는 살만하지 않은가하는 생각으로 돌아가본다. 그래도 한 번의 유럽여행을 위해서 고민에 고민을 거듭해 시간단위로 쪼개고 쪼개넣은 스케줄을 소화하면서 다니던 것을 생각해보면 힐링, 여유, 휴식과 같은 단어를 떠올리며 시작한 여행이 왜 극기훈련이 되어버리는지 못내 아쉽다.
언젠가는 옆집 드나들듯 여행을 할 날이 올거라는 희미한 희망을 해보며 환승열차에 올랐던 기억이 스쳐간다.
오늘은 오후에 갑자기 내린 비 때문인지 서늘하다. 뜨거운 날이 이어지다가 이렇게 한 번씩 비가 내리면 새로운 느낌의 휴식을 가져다준다. 그 사이를 틈타(?) 다시 도서리뷰로 돌아와본다.
지난주에 도서관에 들렀다가 책을 빌리려했는데 찾는 책이 없었다. 오래간만에 경제경영 관련 도서를 찾고 있었는데 문닫을 시간즈음에 찾는 책도 없고해서 눈에 들어오는 블록체인 도서 몇 권을 그냥 집어왔다. 그 중에 한 권이 오늘 리뷰할 책이다.
제목은 '하룻밤에 읽는 블록체인'이다. 실용서들의 대부분이 제목에 패턴이 있어보인다. (매일매일 격무에 힘들어하실 출판사 분들에게는 죄송하지만 여러 책들을 보면 그런 느낌이 있네요. ㅠㅠ) 여하튼 필자의 경우는 좀 읽다가 바쁜일이 겹치면서 이틀밤에 다 읽었다. (-.-;;)
책의 초반부는 조금은 어수선하다. 원저자는 기술서적을 시리즈로 펴내고 있는 '마크 게이츠'인데 그의 책에 국내 내용을 더해 작성한 '정민아 컨설턴트'의 책이다. 2018년 초에 출간된 것을 생각하면 당연하겠지만 한국정부의 ICO 규제에 대한 섭섭함과 자신의 이력에 대해서 너무 강조하다보니 앞부분은 그냥 넘겨버릴뻔 했다. (그래도 끝까지 다 읽었습니다.)
하지만 2부부터는 블록체인의 상식적인 내용에서부터 기술적인 내용까지를 쉽게 풀어낸 책이고 70개의 질문을 답하는 형태로 전문가가 아니어도 쉽게 읽을 수 있고 초심자 입장에서 블록체인이라는 기술과 시장을 이해하기에 부족함이 없는 입문서라 할 수 있겠다.
책의 부제에서도 그 점을 강조하고 있는데 '4차 산업혁명의 미래 '블록체인'의 모든 것 이보다 쉬울 순 없다!'라고 기술하고 있다. 약간은 질의응답을 통한 이론을 설명하는 책이어서 별도로 태깅한 내용은 없지만, 술술 읽어지니 부담이 없고, 그동안 알고 있었던 내용을 다시 정리하는 느낌이 많이 나름 유익했다.
블록체인에 대한 간략한 내용을 기본부터 다시 점검해보고 싶다면 읽어볼만 책이었다.
다른 블록체인 관련도서도 몇 권 가져왔는데 기회가되면 추가로 리뷰하려한다.

바쁜 시간을 보내고 다시 돌아와본다. 여행기, 독서록, 영화리뷰를 돌려가며 쓰고있는데 때로는 컨텐츠의 고갈을 느낀다. 새롭게 충전할 시간을 가져야 하는데 아무래도 쉽지 않을때가 생긴다. 이럴때면 여행 사진첩을 뒤적거리는게 가장 쉬운일이 되어버리나 보다.
이리저리 여행을 하다보면 그 도시의 시장에 가보고 싶은 마음이 든다. 파리에서도 재래시장과 함께 벼룩시장을 들러보고 싶었다. 파리를 여행할 때 마침 방브 벼룩시장이 열리는 때와 일정이 겹쳐 들러보기로 했다. 벼룩시장 근처에는 재래시장도 함께 열리고 있어 역시 볼거리가 많았다.
벼룩시장의 매력이라면 수많은 물건을 구경하는 것도 있지만 거리의 악사나 행위 예술가들 또는 다양한 사람들과 마주치는 것도 또 하나의 매력일 것이다. 방브 벼룩시장은 생각보다 규모가 컸고, 역시나 오르간, 피아노 등을 연주하는 분들도 만날 수 있었다.
무엇보다도 기억에 남는 에피소드가 있는데 벼룩시장이 끝나갈 즈음에 발걸음을 돌려 파리 지하철에 몸을 올려놓았다. 그런데 조금 전 벼룩시장에서 물건을 팔던 아저씨를 만난다. 아저씨는 팔리지 않은 레코드 판을 무릎위에 올려놓고 한 장 한 장 넘겨가며 세상에서 가장 행복한 미소를 보여주고 있었다.
자신의 물건이 팔리지 않아서 행복한 아저씨… 뭔가 재미있다. 자신만의 추억을 돌아보며 행복에 잠겨있는 아저씨를 보고 있으니 괜시리 기분이 좋아졌다. 벼룩시장이 단순하게 물건을 사고파는 장소만은 아니구나 하는 새로운 경험을 했다.
기회가 되면 해외에서 벼룩시장을 들러보자.
자신만의 새로운 경험을 할 수 있을 것이다.
오래간만에 도서 리뷰를 써보려한다. 6월이 1/3이 지난 시점에 첫번째 리뷰를 작성한다고 하니 뭔가 어색하다. 오늘 리뷰할 책은 정말 즐겁게 읽은 책이다. 무려 500여 페이지에 달하는 책이지만 조금씩 읽어나가면서 순간순간 재미를 느끼게 해준 책이다.
오늘 리뷰할 책은 '에카르트 폰 히르슈하우젠'의 '행복은 혼자오지 않는다.'라는 책이다. 책의 부제를 보고나서 표지를 살포시 넘겨보면 저자의 사진에서 뭔가 웃음이 나온다. 부제는 '웃기는 의사 히르슈하우젠의 도파민처럼 짜릿한 행복 처방전'이다.
저자의 이력을 보면 정말 특이하다. 의학과 언론학을 전공했고, 의사생활을 하다가 코미디언으로의 무대 경력을 쌓아간다. 웃음트레이너, 강사, 베스트셀러 작가, 그리고 자신의 이름을 걸고 TV프로그램도 진행하고 있다고 한다. (지금도 하는지는 잘 모르겠다.)
이 책은 우리 생활 안에서 행복의 다양한 모습을 삶에 투영하는 즐거운 글들을 끝나지 않을것처럼 지루하지 않게 풀어가는 책이다. 사진에 보이는 것처럼 태깅할 내용이 너무나 많았지만 고르고 골라서 포스트잇을 붙여봤다. 그리고 소개하고 싶은 재미있는 글들이 너무나 많은데 아무래도 일독을 권하는게 좋을듯 하다.
그 많은 마음에 드는 글 중에서 몇 가지만 간단하게 소개해 볼까 한다.
"중요한 것은 태어날 때부터 내게 주어진 성격과 유전자로부터 어떻게 최상의 결과를 이끌어내느냐 하는 겁니다. 나의 장점을 찾아내어 그것들을 더욱 강화시켜야 합니다. 10년후에 얼마나 행복할지 가장 확실히 말해 주는 심리테스트는 당신이 지금 얼마나 행복한지 묻는 것입니다. 대체 언제 테스트를 시작하시렵니까?" (본문중에서 p76)
이제는 세상이 많이 변해서 내일의 행복을 위해 오늘을 저당 잡힌다는 것은 구시대의 말인지도 모른다. 때로는 저축도 필요하겠지만, 아무래도 가장 필요한건 인생에 방학이 아닌가하는 생각도 해본다. 지금 당장 행복하지 않다면 미래에 행복하겠다는게 어떤 설득력이 있을지 잘 모르겠다.
"담뱃갑에 적힌 경고문은 정말 금연 효과가 있을까요? 얼마 전에 가판대에서 한 흡연자가 담뱃갑의 경고을 읽고 깜짝 놀라는 장면을 목격한 적이 있습니다. 자세히 보니까 "흡연은 성 불능을 유발합니다"라고 쓰여 있더군요. 그 남자는 잠깐 생각하더니 담배를 다시 판매원에게 돌려주며 이렇게 말했습니다. "이거 말고 암을 유발한다고 쓰여 있는 걸로 주세요." (본문중에서 p281)
이 책 안에는 이런 글들이 넘쳐난다. (너무 썰렁하다구요? ^^) 진지하게 의학적인 내용이 나오는가 해서 읽다보면 어느새 웃음을 불러오는 글들이 독자에게 다가와 살짜기 즐겁게 만들어주는 책이다. 아마도 수많은 TV쇼를 진행한 경험이 있어서 그런지 책에서도 그런 요소들이 너무나 명확하게 배치되어 있다.
행복에 대한 다양한 해석을 매우매우 길게 정리한 책이지만 책을 읽다보면 행복 안에 들어와 있는 그런 책이었다. 이 즐거움 모두들 나눠 가지시기를 바라면서.
주중 휴일은 언제나 즐겁다. 더운날 이후에 찾아오는 비가 반갑기도 하고 서늘해진 날씨가 약간은 주중의 피로감을 날려주기도 하니 더없이 기분이 좋다.
제목에서 말하는 '포기란 무엇일까?' 바로 우리가 흔하게 말하는 '포기는 배추를 셀때나 하는 말이야!' 할 때 쓰는 바로 그말이다. 최근에 다시 들은 말이지만 이상하게도 필자의 주변에는 포기를 종용하는 사람들이 많아 더욱 투지를 불태우게 만들어준다. 왜들 그러는지는 모르겠지만 참으로 고마운 분들이다.
어릴적에 어느날 갑자기 '헤비메탈'음악이 다가온다. 어느날 갑자기 찾아온 충격적인 음악에 사로잡히고 방과 후면 하루종일 시끄러운 음악에 빠져들어 새벽까지 듣다가 이어폰을 귀 안에 품고 잠이 들었던 기억이 있다. 그 때도 헤비메탈 음악을 듣는다고 말하면 누군가 '포기해!'라고 말했던 기억이 있다. '왜?' 그럴수록 더 미친듯 음악에 빠져들었다. 아마도 그 기억이 방안에 여러 대의 기타와 악기와 밤을 지새우게 만들어준 경험을 만들어준 기억이 난다.
무엇보다도 더 고마웠던건 악기를 연주하면서 무엇인가의 구조를 분석하는 능력이 발전하게 된 좋은 경험이 있고, 수많은 음악들을 들으면서 정서적인 안정과 감성적인 느낌을 나에게 불어넣어주기에 충분한 경험이었다. 그 때 포기하라던 그 말 너무나 고마운 기억이다.
얼마전 사무실에서 공부, 독서 이런 이야기가 주제가 되어서 대화가 오고갔다. 그러던 중에 자연스럽게 독서 이야기를 하게 되었는데 누군가 '포기해!'라고 다시 말해준다. '왜?' 뭐 책읽고 공부하는 것까지 포기하라는 것인지? 아 또 투지를 불사르게 만들어주는구나. 이번에 '포기'하라는 말. 고맙게 만들어주려면 뭐를 해볼까?
살짝 웃음이 배어 나온다.
나에게 고마운 말 '포기'
파리의 즐거움이라면 이방인이 느끼기에는 여러가지 볼거리들과 휴식을 즐기기에 좋은 장소들이 많다는 것이아닐까 생각된다. 물론 우리나라에도 그런 공간들이 많이 생겨나고 있지만 뭔가 다양성이라는 측면에서는 조금 아쉬움이 있다.
물론 이방인의 눈으로 봤기 때문에 그렇게 느껴질지 모르겠지만 현지인들은 어떻게 느껴질지… 그런 의미에서 지난번 몽마르뜨 언덕을 지나 미술관으로 유명한 퐁피두 센터로 이동해본다. 퐁피두 센터는 파리의 3대 미술관 중에 하나라는데 현대미술 위주여서 그런지 사실 작품 감상에 관심이 있었다기 보다는 센터의 특이한 외관을 보러간 목적이 컸다. (하지만 오늘도 센터의 사진은 없다. 이 시리즈는 대부분 그렇다. 죄송..)
퐁피두 센터는 독창적인 외관도 그렇지만(외부에 각종 배관을 노출시켜놓아서 멀리서 보면 공장처럼 보이기도 하는 특이한 구조로 만들어져있다.), 주변의 각종 조형물과 광장, 그리고 공원처럼 만들어진 센터 앞에서 여러 예술가들의 자유분방한 작품(?) 활동이 눈길을 끌기에 충분했다.
내부에서는 현대적이고 개방적인 구조의 전시실을 지나 광장으로 나와본다. 그 순간 하늘을 쳐다보는데 가슴 벅차게 자유를 느끼게 만들어주는 새들을 만난다. 퐁피두 광장 하늘을 이리저리 날아다니는 새들을 바라보면서 한참동안 광장에 머물렀다.
이 시리즈에서 제목에 나오는 장소들은 별도로 사진을 올려보겠다. ^^
I had to write a book I read in May, but I couldn't read it in May. I had a busy day, and after about two weeks of absence, I felt like reading a book. Then I looked at the calendar again and it was late May! The curious look of last month's settlement has become hard to remember where to go and the last book I read. But it's a settlement!
Now, let's go into the book I read in May!
- Books I Read in May 2019 -
1. The Road / Cormac McCarthy's Written / Translated by Jung Young-mok / Munhak-dong
You are the only one who knows the answer.
The book I read in May is simple. I reflect on myself and gather my mind. Now I have a book in my hand again after a little busy work has been done. As the first book in June, I chose a huge book of about 500 pages, which is so interesting.
The most interesting book in May (in fact, it's embarrassing because it's two books). I'd like to pick The Road of Cormac McCarthy. A book that was as vivid as a movie! If I get a chance, I want to see it because it is in a movie.
I will try to read more books in June. The books in the bookcase call me.

I'm busy, so I can't even write well in the publication. I'm sure I'll use it first.
Living in a world of capitalism, I feel uncomfortable and work everyday, but if I mess with a nice car and a nice house in front of me, I might be able to get a Lotto store as a cool solution.
In my case, I can't remember when the last copy of the Lotto was made. At a time when coin prices are rising, it is somewhat curious whether the percentage of coin holders buying Lotto will decrease.
Weekend.. I quote from reading a book after a long time.
(I don't think the author intends to belittle a particular religion, so please read it lightly.)
# Moses grumbled against God, the world and his own destiny He went out into the desert to pray and complain to God. No response. He kept praying. A week, a month, a year. After a year, Moses began to complain again.
"Lord, please give me a chance. Let me win the Lotto only once."
"Then a miracle arose, and heaven opened over his head, and a holy voice came to him."
"Moses, I had to listen to your complaints for a year. Please give me a chance now because I'm begging you. Go ahead and buy that fucking lottery!"
(Eckart von Hirschhausen, among 'Happiness does not come alone')
How about Lotto over the weekend?

In the past, I used to watch movies all night long to get rid of the debris of complicated work when I got home from working late every day. Especially, there was a time when I thought horror movies were the best thing to do when stress was so extreme that I could erase bad memories with something stimulating.
Of course, because the movie was very exciting, the painful memories of my work were blown away, but the next morning I used to get tired. Recently, it is hard to watch a movie as before, but because of those memories, I have seen this very movie.
I heard about the movie on the radio a while ago, but my previous movie "Get Out" was so famous that my eyes were on it again. It is called "us," directed by Jordan Pill. If you look at the genre of the movie on the Internet, it says 'horror, thriller.' After watching the movie, I looked up a little bit about director Jordan Phil, and it was unusual for me to start my career as a comedian. I can't imagine a little since I made my debut as a movie director after being a successful comedian.
Let's return to the movies. Instead of being in the genre of horror movies, I feel like I'm going through the format of the genre. If you look on the Internet, it seems to be an open ending with various interpretations of the ending posted on it, but it makes the viewer think about it.
A strangely suspenseful composition and red 'Fit Light' in horror movies create harmony (? I'm not a weird person) and enhance your presence. The unimaginable events that take place in the holiday zone, and the plot that seems to cross the past, present and future, are too free to lock everything in the frame of horror film, and the plot is also amazing. It is interesting to see that the most central event in the movie, the setting of another battle with me that looks just like him, continues. Of course, we applaud the solid composition of the anti-war structure.
However, if you think of a Hollywood-style movie or a commercial movie with a famous actor, you might swear at the end of the movie. If you want to taste an unusual horror movie in your mind that you are a bit of a non-mainstream person, try it out.
PS There are a lot of things I want to say, but I'm afraid of spoilers, so I'll just finish it up here.

It's been a long time since I wrote in a pub. I had a bit of a rough schedule for about two weeks. Although I did my best (really?), I'm a little bit embarrassed by the poor results, but it's been a long time since I've been taking a rest. I'm going to rummage through the travel photo album again to commemorate my return.
After visiting Versailles Palace, I try to climb Montmartre. As soon as you get off at the subway station, you are already surprised by the crowds. There are so many people. If you go up the hill past the crowd, you will see the famous Sacramente Cathedral. If you get close, you will find the famous black brothers. (If you try to block the way and try to force the sale of things and pass by without paying attention, you let it pass.)
After that, you can climb Montmartre Hill and look at the cathedral, but you can look back and see the city of Paris better. (I'll upload a picture of the cathedral.) The Montmartre hill is filled with shops selling various souvenirs, where numerous artists can be seen painting portraits nearby.
If you fall into the back alley, you can find nice cafes or houses, and you get the urge to walk down the alley every day to the point where it's so romantic. This is why you should visit famous places even though there are many people.
During my trip to Paris, I felt as if I could walk and walk, but I couldn't stop. I feel like I'm going to be able to write a book every day. ^^).
Writing after a long time feels like a new feeling.
Hi. Long time no see. Pubble. Yep.
I felt more tired because I went to work on Saturday after a long time and greeted Sunday. Today, I had a day with a pledge to rest, but I feel bored in the afternoon. I have no feeling of taking a special rest, so I take a book.
The book I'm going to introduce today is 'No Warren,' a simple readable book called 'You Only Know the Answer.' If one experiences difficulties in human relations at work, it is thought to be a book that suggests a methodology that can be reconsidered from the basics of communication.
Looking at the subtitle of the book, it has a long and long subtitle: "The profound lessons of life changing one's life, how to form relationships with others, especially with oneself." In fact, the subtitle is being solved from the main character's perspective of "Bob" in the form of a story.
Here's a quote from what I liked.
"If no one cares about what you're doing, Bob, why are you wasting your life trying to make others like you?" (P31)
The meaning may be different, but have you ever asked yourself, 'What do you work for?' Well... why am I working? simply for money? I'd like to think about it seriously for once and get it over with.
"It's a word that expresses your personal style. That's how you relate to the world. You think it's important to entertain others. I don't know why, but there's an incident in your childhood that seems to hold you back. It's an obstacle to your best qualities. It's like always putting your foot on the brakes when you're traveling in a car and you're afraid it won't stop when you need it. You can't go anywhere with your foot on the brake." (P61 in the text)
Yes, you can't go with your foot on the brake. I know it well, but it's really hard.
"It's as simple as the eyes, nose, and mouth on your face. Wouldn't it be better for you to understand other people's characteristics? Well, isn't communication your main business, anyway? Same with other people. We communicate with people every day. A good leader is the one who understands this." (P93)
In order to identify these characteristics, the book presents the pros and cons in four categories. The style is of initiative type, stability type, sociability type and prudence type. Of course, I won't mention each character separately because I can read the book. The volume of the book is appropriate and is easily written in the form of a story, which is thought to be a good book to check and evoke the patterns of one's conversation.
What type are you?
PS pictures are taken from Pixbay.
These days, there are many complicated and untidied events for various reasons, but I relive memories by looking up the travel picture again. The author's ID may be a little bit thumbs-and-feet (? (I might be the only one......There are many different backgrounds, though they are shaped.
Like a joke, this is an ID that has a big picture (?) that if you grow up and become a great man, you will end your beggar life and return to the castle and start your past princely life again.)
In this sense, I choose a picture that I looked out of the window from inside the Palace of Versailles with the intention of feeling it. The size of the Versailles Palace is beyond imagination, as it has made all the palaces in the world shabby. I don't know if it was more like visiting in cold weather, but I don't know if I'm done even if I walk to the end of the picture.
It was discovered that Louis XIV built so much to strengthen his reign that he was as powerful as the statue at the entrance. It was fashionable for aristocrats to experience rural life.It is beyond my imagination to say that the palace was a replica of a rural village.
After a hard walk and a round of turns, I see a line of people trying to get on a small train in front of the building. Maybe that train will make it very easy to go round. I can't help the beggar prince even if he comes to France. Still, the sights of the Versailles Palace, which are glittering in gold here and there, were the eye drops itself.
Waiting for the day to return to the castle......
Like the title, I hope it's a day off, but I hope it's a day when I'm comfortable with writing.k.a.k.a.k.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.k.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a.a. If you run in one direction, you have to look far and catch your breath, but I think that's the way it is now.
I'm talking about it, and it's my personal story. It's been a while since I've been thinking about a new mission. I need to win, but I think I have a lot of worries.
As I was taking a walk on the weekend, I met a big arrow on the trail. Living in a position where there are no answers in the world, I have doubts about the arrow, and sometimes I want to walk the path of my heart.
I think that's going to happen one day. (It should be done, but it's a little bit.)
It's a gibberish piece of writing, but please take it as a cute one. ^^
I'm going to organize a fresh mind inside the Publicito.
If you live or work in Seoul, you will pass or face the Han River every day. In any country, there must be a river that represents the capital city, but in Paris you meet the Seine River. It's a name that makes me feel romantic.If you walk along the Seine River, you will feel that kind of romance here and there, and if you go on a cruise at night to enjoy the night view of Paris, you will be able to enjoy it all the more.
The size of the river is smaller than I thought, although I felt it when I visited London when I was young. If you think of our Han River and face it, you will feel quite small from the width of the river. However, considering that only apartments can be seen around our Han River, the view from the Seine River is just wonderful.
In the Thames River in London, the Seine River was no different if you saw romance and relaxation in a scene where countless crowds were exercising, taking a walk and sipping a glass of beer. It smelled and the water was not clean, but the leisure of the surrounding scenery was enough to bind everything to the word "free."
Even if I walked all day, my legs wouldn't hurt (in fact, my legs hurt a lot) but there were lots of things to see. France has been to Paris and southern cities a lot, but it wants to go again. Where should I go if I have another chance?
Recently, many parks and other places for citizens to rest have been created in each region, and now there are many places with good facilities in Korea. The theme of the parks is that there are many parks in different regions, but they are somewhat uniform, so it seems that there are no special features, but what was good about looking around Paris was that there were so many places where the old-looking gardens of the Middle Ages were built into parks.
From the Arc de Triomphe, cross the streets of Champs-Elysees and come down to the Garden of Tsuris. As the name is the garden, the landscape is excellent. Also, the interstitial sculptures are thought to have moved from the Middle Ages to museum objects.
In the distance, you can see the Eiffel Tower, the Ferris wheel, the Obelisk, and many green chairs in the park, so you can see citizens resting freely with their own poses, and I put on the buttocks. For a while, I take a rest while looking far into the sky. I felt as if I were walking all day long, but I felt tired running away.
Our parks have also moved back to their homes, thinking that they would like us to make our own characteristics good. But do the people of Paris feel tired of their medieval park?
I can't remember reading a novel recently. But I chose a novel after a long time. I felt a sense of immersion in the book I caught thoughtlessly. How long has it been since I read a book that feels like watching a movie?
Today's book is 'THE ROAD' by Pulitzer Prize-winning Cormac McCarthy. The author is famous for being the originator of several films and for producing outstanding works despite his age. The film has also been made into a film, but there is no country for old people.It is said that the original film is also his work.
While reading the book, I felt like a mix of disaster and zombie movies. The tension continues from beginning to end. The dialogue between the father and the son that appears in between is very philosophical. The movie is about to end the life of a protagonist who barely survives his life like a dying embers.
I take some extracts from the memorable passages.
"Don't forget that the things you put in your head stay there forever. Think about it./ The man said. Don't you forget something? / Yeah. I forget what I want to remember and I remember what I want to forget." (P17 from the text)
Is that really so? When the remnants of memories you don't want to remember bother you, you deliberately focus on something. Maybe that's why he lives by working day by day.
"People always prepared for tomorrow, but I didn't believe that. I didn't prepare anything for those people tomorrow. I didn't even know there were people like that./ I guess so. Even if you know what to do, you don't know what to do when you're in a hurry. You won't know if you want to do that. Imagine you're the last person left. Imagine you do that to yourself." (P192)
While reading this book, I thought about this a lot. In fact, how am I going to live in a world similar to the end of the world? What choices can I make? Just as I was drawing those thoughts in my head, I got sucked into the book, and sometimes scenes were portrayed in the drama "Working Dead."
Since the author, Cormac McCarthy, lived in seclusion similar to the story of the book, I wonder if he could have used it more realistically. It was a book that I had never thought of, and you'd be immersed in it.
What will you do in the Earth devastated by the disaster?

Time really flies. I've already finished April and now I'm going to organize the book I read in April again when I have to May. I always feel uncomfortable when I write this. The purpose of reading a book is to remind a book I read for a month rather than simply the number of books I read, but strangely, the memory of the book I read at the beginning of the month is dim. Perhaps that is why we further reduce the need for this article.
Now, let's go into the book I read in April!

In April, the volume of books is increasing from five to seven in March. I'm trying to read even consciously. As I read books by making the most of my commute time and weekends, I have to keep books in my hands when I have more time to write my own words.
When I choose the book that I liked the most this month, I think about it again. In April, Park Wan-seo wrote, "The road is more beautiful.'를▁꼽아보고▁싶다.▁화려하지는▁않지만▁소박하면서도▁힘이있는▁필체에▁매료되는▁그런▁책이었다. Although the genre of prose collection is not well-mannered, it is more memorable as it is a book that conveys its deep meaning in calm while being read comfortably.
The middle settlement of books, which started in February as the month of May, is getting more interesting. Now I feel like books are talking to me like, 'Read me this time!' in the bookcase. I wonder which books will make me excited in May.

April is running to the end. I'd like to read another book and organize it before it's over. Reading the book, we will return to economic management and self-improvement. The book I will introduce today is "Do Like a Secretary" by author Cho Kwan-il.
His book, "Don't Say Good Words" was so interesting that I came back to my desk. This book, which I have, says that it was written by the author. It is believed that the volume of books in the bestseller category was published, and that it was an old book, and that it was later placed in a bookstore. Of course, sales are not important, but it is a book that can be easily read because it is about working life.
Most people start their careers as employees and end up as employees, and the book's subtitle shows a slightly different approach. It says, "The way the key people think and act like bosses are successful." And at the bottom of the cover in bold letters, you can see a phrase written more irritably written.
"47% of Samsung Group's bosses are former secretaries" Prepared No. 1, how do they work?
Perhaps most of the presidents of the large companies we encounter are from non-Western sources, maximizing what the book is trying to convey. As is considered to be a classic of social life, "If you work like a president, you can succeed.'The main content of this message is to convey it through the position of secretary, which is to quote a few expressions below.
A behind-the-scenes strategy is a strategy that centralizes yourself, like a secretary who is a key figure in a company. This is a success strategy that learns from a secretary, and a hidden strategy that practices quietly without showing any respect to others. It's also a self-innovation strategy to become a secretary-like secretary as well, and from a company's point of view, it's a strategy to centralize all employees like a secretary." (P19 from the text)
I really like the word 'core'. It's not an easy road, but "Let's Be a Jew" is my idea in my usual work life, which is probably a word that is in line with that idea. It can be interpreted that he is reborn as a key person through self-innovation, instead of using superficial expressions such as "Let's do our best."
More and more, I have been singled out for my professional virtues for precision and precision. I used to refer to myself as '쪼,' but I am told to lower my voice to those who are so absent that they can't play the ball. In reality, however, people who are too meticulous, timid, or meticulous are also called "쪼." In the latter sense, I emphasize to my junior colleagues, "Be old." (In order to accomplish your part and succeed in your career, you have to have a meticulous, detailed, meticulous, and timid 'P98' (from the text).
I read this book more interestingly because there are so many things that I sympathize with it. Of course, I was surprised that it was an old book, but I still sympathize with what the author calls a "kultarone." I think meticulousness and meticulousness are too important virtues of work life. No, I think it is not only a job but also a necessary capacity to live. As anyone would say, I hate the rough and the rough for me. (In fact, it's a lot of pressure to say this, but I'm going to use it today.)
If you look back on your memory from the time you were a new recruit, many dizzying moments will come to mind. In the case of the author, I have a sudden experience of burning my hair with old expressions. Of course, these memories do not come back to life because they want to. It is a book that offers a lesson in how to approach success, even though it is solving a tight working life that is a little incomprehensible to the present generation.
I recommend carefully that you read the book during rush hour.

Perhaps the movie that is sweeping the theater is the "End Game" of the Avengers. It's been a long time since I've seen a movie on the weekend. I booked early in the morning, but I was just surprised by the crowd filling the theater. Although there were many young students watching the movie, the movie was so popular that it was somewhat unexpected to watch the movie.
Why are we talking about the Avengers when the review title is a different movie? It's the first movie review in a long time. "Since I'm going to get out of the way and go my own way," he said.
There may be many different genres in movies, but in the case of the most. I'm interested in this kind of movie, but I'm looking for a disaster movie again this time. The film, "ARCTIC," depicts the struggle for survival of the wrecked protagonist on the North Pole, as the title suggests.
For an hour and a half, I've been painting the same daily routine on a snowy glacier every day. Why did I find this movie and see it? I went to the theater and saw the Avengers for three hours, and I thought, "I was more interested in the movie that depicts the great action in the North Pole. I think it's similar to the movie that I wanted to feel the vitality of life among people who go to marketplaces and live fiercely when I feel the mannerism of things in my life."
I remember it was midwinter when I was young. A movie was screened at a gathering of many people because of a special gathering. The movie that was shown on the spot was a disaster film called 'ALIVE' to fit in the middle of winter. A movie about a plane carrying a Uruguayan college rugby team that survived the crash on the Andes mountains. When I had a chance, I remember seeing it again and again and again.
Although the introduction to "ARCTIC" did not contain much content, it is thought that the movie is something that anyone who enjoys disaster can easily watch.
Maybe it's because of the energy of Monday's disease, which is raising its head again, that this movie is trying to rebuild the will of life.

I've been a little busy for a week, so I've become lazy to read. As I left on a business trip, I put a book in a heavy bag in case, but the existence of the book disappeared from my memory for two days. Then there was a book excavated from the bag at the end of the week, which is a collection of prose by author Park Wan-seo titled "The Way Is More Beautiful."
This book has a strong penchant for preface. Even if you are not a book lover, it is a collection of simple prose that you might have heard once in the name of the author, but as strong as the message is, it is embroidered in writing.
There are many articles that reveal the writer's life experiences, but the main reason behind this is the Korean War. The various stories that I felt in the memory of war after graduating from high school may not be enough for my generation to feel indirectly, but it is even greater to feel the simple bitterness. Try to extract some of the below.
Human patience, the beauty of human nature, is hidden in the ordinary people, not necessarily the image that the smart ones can pinning them on their n Is it true to pursue in the name of literature? I think it may be just a fabricated image, a frivolous exaggeration, and a mere fraction of what is expressed in words, because of the freedom and limitations of what is expressed in words, the desire to be read." (P40 in the text)
It was a very short time when I was young, but I was under the illusion that I was good at writing and speaking. (It's such a shameful memory, and my hands and feet still shrivel.) When I read this article, I close my eyes slightly again, thinking that I'm a human being who has not long since felt the real heart wins, but who is always tempted in the process of adding.
I don`t know how many more years I`ll be able to write, but if I have a new commitment as a writer, I will try to change the habit of never putting an underscore on other people`s books. I feel disenchanted because I think it's a form of condescension, petty vanity, or, more accurately, autism, and so on, I feel so disgusted. Who would like me who I hate?" (P156 in the text)
In my case, I never underline, take notes, or write It becomes irritating to read a book by marking it with small sticker paper, organizing it separately, and removing it again. Still, I'd like to finish this writing with a little comfort while watching my ID armed with narcissism.
As the picture from the top of the Arc de Triomphe began, I'd like to upload a few more. This time, turn your eyes and look at the area of Radefangs, famous for its new Arc de Triomphe. It helps the weather and the clouds in the sky are wonderful. And the tall buildings around Radefangs' Arc de Triomphe are also creating a wonderful atmosphere.
But I haven't been to the Radefangs. Paris had so many places to look around, even if it wasn't a Radefence. In fact, today's picture may be of a regretful look at the Radefangs region from a distance. I don't know if you're saving up to travel again, but I don't know if you're going to go back to Paris. It may be because there are more places I haven't been, but within Europe there is also the attraction of France's constant attraction.
Personally, I want to stay in a city for a long time and look at it in detail, but I always look around half way and find a place to miss.
As always, put your regrets behind you and keep them on the Wish List in the photo album in your memory.
In the previous article, the title was "Around the Eiffel Tower.""But if you were disappointed because you didn't have a picture of the Eiffel Tower, today you can look back on your memory with the picture of the Eiffel Tower. But today's picture is Eiffel Tower from afar. If it is a symbol of Paris, it is by far the Eiffel Tower. If the place is Seoul, what is the symbol? It won't have to flow out of the side street, so stop here and go back to Paris.
Looking back on the old memories, I remember walking around all day with my camera around my head on weekends. I wonder if there are any distinct tastes in pictures taken as hobbies, but strangely, pictures of people looking straight and those of buildings that are too close to the eye are not attractive. (Of course, personally...)
Maybe that's why I took this picture of the Eiffel Tower from afar, but I personally like it. As I said before, the Eiffel Tower from the Shayo Palace across from the Eiffel Tower is the most beautiful, but the Eiffel Tower from afar with the sky is also good.
So, where did you take this picture?
It's none other than the top of the Arc de Triomphe. The advantage of the Arc de Triomphe is not as high as the Montparnas Tower, but it's the best place to look at the famous buildings in each direction from the center of Paris. You can look up at the Eiffel Tower like in the picture, or you can see the nearby Shangri-je street crowds and the area of Radhepans, where you can see modern improvements in different directions, and that far away Montmartre Hill.
After looking around the charming places of Paris from such a distance, you can take them out one by one and meet them one by one, and it's a great.
Of course, we're going to take one by one, and then we're going to continue...
PS Instagram is a bit sad because the print of the picture was cut off a bit.
The weekend is coming back. Let's get organized in time for a new week to start. This weekend, I was mincing because I didn't want to do anything, but I read a book. (Actually, it was read during the week...) There are many books in the bookcase of that kind of class, as there are many books in the bookcase which are related to old companies.
The book to be introduced today is "The Servant Leadership" by James C. Hunter. Since the book was published in the early 2000s, it was printed up to the second edition and sold more than 20 books, it is thought that there are many people who know it. Now I read such a famous book. We often see people who show leadership through self-sacrifice while living in a company and often cite the term "servant leadership," but we start checking the contents.
In the case of the writer, when he has to work in density in a short period of time and observe quality and delivery time at the same time, the final result was that he had to endure and hold on, but everything was on the desk. I don't think it's the "survant leadership" that creates this environment simply. The right leadership we know would be a good idea to create and properly manage an environment where subordinates can make as many mistakes as possible, but the business environment like the jungle isn't always the case. In that respect, the book describes leadership as this.
"Administration is not a term that means something you do for others. You manage inventory lists and checkbooks or other means. You can even manage yourself. But you can't manage other personalities. Things are managed, but people are led."
"leadership:a technique that exerts influence on people so that they can focus on goals set for common good."
(P44-45 in text)
It's neat. It's man's care, man's lead! Reid's influence on people!
There is another neat expression, which I quote.
"But evolution is not possible without actually changing ourselves. Those who deserve to lead others are those who have a brave spirit to question themselves and try to change. George Bernard Shaw said, A wise man adapts himself to the world, but a foolish man insists that the world adjusts to him. So evolution depends on how stupid people do it.' (p79 in the text).
The book consists of people from different professions gathering in monasteries and talking to each other, and sometimes cliche-looking expressions may be boring, but they have their own healthy expressions. Among them, the center of "servant leadership" is solved by eight factors (patience, kindness, humility, respect, altruism, forgiveness, respect, dedication) compared to love. It may seem a little unrealistic, but if you're thinking about leadership, it's worth reading.
The end of the weekend! May you have a nice new week...…
The title is weird? Is it a hwatu? What is it? What?
I guess I've got the book. It's been three months since I started reading it again, and I've been reading it when I have time. Today, I will introduce my book again. Today I chose a book that I can read relatively lightly. The important thing is that you should try to be good at anything because you think small things are important.
The book to be introduced today is "The Joyful Butterfly Effect," a work by Linda Kaplan Taler and Robin Cobal. The subtitle says 'nine reasons why you have to risk your life on trivial things.' You'll see what's roughly central.
This book deals with the surprising consequences of a small word, a small action. I'm sure we've heard a lot of cases where what we thought was nothing would lead to a big accident, or where the consequences of careful and careful work on principle would come back to great success. This is full of such cases. But I don't know why it's so hard for us to practice this coming "one difference." By the time we pass the word "h-h-h-h-h-ah. It means nothing.
In my case, I sometimes have arguments in my office because of such small differences, and most people say, 'Why should I do this when the customer hasn't asked for this much?I hear a lot of people say, 'Don't you mind if the customer gets angry then?' There are many reasons, of course, but if you turn things around like professional ethics and capitalism, you may never know the world in which these little differences are made. (Not at all, I don't know much.)
Here are some examples of what I remember in the book.
"People usually think that the person who has to change is the other person, not the person who has to change. But we can't change others. All we can control is our actions." (P29 from the text)
Oh. I like it so much though it's a short sentence. It's simple and powerful. It feels pointless to be feeling it.
"If the carpet on the floor looks worn out when you enter the dentist's office, you may be wondering if dental equipment is the latest equipment. In the business world, customer perception is of paramount importance. How customers perceive your company plays a crucial role in success. One mistake, one unfriendly employee, one unpleasant experience will make the customer feel negatively, which can cause you great damage." (p155 from the text)
There may be anecdotes that I have experienced once in my first year in society. If you've had a lot of experience like that, it wouldn't be easy for you to survive in the company.) You may have developed muscles in your mind and found out that small differences can give you a lot of strength.
What is the small difference you think?
PS Today's pictures are taken from pixbay.
At the end of the weekend, I come back to my book story. Yesterday's long outing and today's volatile weather have created a perfect environment for reading. Thanks to you, take the time to read and organize a book. The book I will introduce today is a book by Professor Seok Ji-young, who is a life professor at Harvard University. The title is 'World I Wanted to See.'
In fact, I picked up this book because I thought it would be free on the subway due to the distance of travel while I was out in a hurry. I tried to read it with a light heart, as the profile is also a profile, but the atmosphere felt in the title is likely to attract students and parents who are about to study abroad or take the exam.
As a personal experience, this kind of book often plays the same role as a guide to success for growing students rather than an autobiographical character, so I opened the book without much expectation. In the first half of the book, the growth process was not necessarily boring, so the bookcase went over the magic trickery.
By the way, it's going to be in the middle of the year, so my career is so unique. I read books like crazy in my childhood, piano and violin classes and competitions, experience in American Ballet School (SAB) for a while, life at Yale University, and literature major at Oxford University. What's this all of a sudden? The thought of is passing by Seok Ji-young, who is famous as a Harvard professor for life, is a law teacher, but what does this career mean?
Those who have lived as if the above art and literature were everything, apply to Harvard Law School at some point and later become a law professor at Harvard University after going through a career of public prosecutor. If it were in Korea, the story of graduating from law school through a regular curriculum would have been the whole story, but based on art and literature, it gained extensive experience and entered the best path in the field of law. There are so many loud noises and implications. There are many phrases I want to remember in the interim, but I only try to extract some.
"My most frequent advice for Korean students is to find a chance to learn anything that makes you uncomfortable, whether it's in front of people, whether it's hard to speak or write. All things are, but this also needs practice. You have to push yourself and do it again and again until it's easy, or until you can enjoy it." (P240 from the text)
"I hope something has been told in my story. That is to accept the imperfections that growth requires. The most precious part of my life's journey was the growing freedom. The most precious part of my life's journey was the growing freedom. In other words, freedom to think, work, love, and play. It is impossible for anyone who tries to be perfect to feel free. It just hurts! Training to develop what I love is very rewarding. But not because it's perfect. I can't be perfect. I don't want my children either." (P254)
It was when I read ballerina Kang Sue-jin's autobiography in the past, but I can feel something in common when I see successful people, although it may not be all about having to go through a painful process of discipline like a monk. Read and feel for yourself.…

Memories of Paris run wild and walk all day. And it's full of memories of snooping around so many things in a short period of time. Other cities in Europe may have many things to see, but I think there is a city like Paris where we have heard a little bit of it or are full of familiar attractions.
As I came to Paris, I thought it would be natural to look around the Eiffel Tower, so I moved from my lodging near Montparnas to the Eiffel Tower. I took a Paris subway that smelled a lot, and the Paris subway was divided into the old subway and the newly built Saeji subway.
There are many ways to see the Eiffel Tower, but it's the best way to see it at Palais de Chaillot across the street. When we arrive at Shayo Palace, the Eiffel Tower, which was seen on TV far away, stands tall. But why is there no Eiffel Tower in one picture while talking about the Eiffel Tower?
I was tired of taking the picture of the Eiffel Tower, but I met this scene while looking around. It looked a little dangerous, but the man who came into the frame felt as if he was about to fly into the sky, enjoying his freedom. Feeling the breeze gently, I open my arms and close my eyes. I feel as if I'm going to fly away any moment.
Why? Because I'm looking at the Eiffel Tower in front of my eyes!
The picture of the Eiffel Tower should look forward to the next opportunity.

I come back to book review after a long time. I was busy for a few days, but the book I chose this time was a subject that I should read with a little thought, so it took me a long time to read. Let's go and see.
Today's book is called "Snoop by Sam Gosling." The subtitle reads "Power to see through others." It's interesting to see the author's history of writing the book, as a professor of psychology at the University of Texas, who is known for his 'bedroom study.'
'Silence study'... What is this?
The author studies the study of the study of things from the age of the owner of the room to the gender and character of the room by looking only at the objects in the bedroom. He is also famous for appearing on ABC's TV program and working on a project to match the owner of a product through snooping, perhaps because of his mysterious ability.
How on earth can we figure out these things? Here are some examples from this book.
"The last thing you can do to sharpen and polish your weapons is simple. And it helps snooping in every way. That's what you have to ask. When I visit a place for the first time, I ask the ark owner about the things in the room. The prior knowledge gained from it is of great help to understand other clues, especially when thinking in combination with other information. So I'll keep asking. Why do you keep your beer in the microwave..." (p329 in the text)
Isn't there something about the detective? To me, it feels like a very exciting area. You can only draw a person's image by looking at someone's stuff, and the pleasure you feel when you find clues and find out what they're meant to be through a conversation! I think it's a bit like the kind of payoff or something you sometimes feel in your job.
There are many interesting examples in the book, but not all can be introduced, so let's set out the area below for snooping, which the author has set as an example. I hope you can think of the main character in the area below.
"Snoop's Snooping Zone: Facebook, Personal Homepage, Bedroom, Office, Top 10 of the favorite songs, Social Behavior Form, Simple Interview" (p303)
In the case of the writer, 'simple interviews' are most likely to be preferred among the above snooping areas. Because of the nature of the job, I think it's because it's a fun area to talk and get information through analysis.
Nearly 400 pages of the book were a bit difficult, but the subject itself was an interesting area, so I read it with interest.
PS pictures were taken from Pixbay.
After finishing the series "If You Live abroad for a Month," he thought about how to write the next series. I made a list of the series and did my best to write a list on Excel, but the conclusion. So, the conclusion was to search for travel photo albums and organize them into one photo, focusing on memorable episodes. I don't know who said it, but I try to get an idea from 'Simple is Best!'
The above picture was taken when I went to Paris, France. When I went on this trip, I left my body on a plane to Paris without thinking about it at a time when it was really physically and mentally difficult. The afternoon when I arrived in Paris, the weather was very cloudy. Thanks to this, the first impression of Paris was not very pleasant, as it was cloudy with even rain.
I woke up at 5 a.m. in a hotel room that was more spacious than I thought, and ran around Montparnasse in a calm, anxious spirit. I felt alive as I was running through the streets of Paris, where there was no traffic.
Then I meet Luminarie who suddenly appears on the street. I was running like a horse and stopped. Then I pressed the soft shutter. There was a strangely indescribable sense of happiness in the streets where no one was present. Yeah, he's alive. I'm alive.
Another episode: Maybe because they ran too fast, they let go of their neck warmers in the heat, and the cameras cut the air together. At the end of this picture, the beloved lens died.

You're in full bloom when you come out to go out. The photo didn't look pretty because it was a backlight, but I upload it without any pressure.
The weather is cloudy, but have a nice weekend. ^^
Was it too comfortable to post a PS event? ^^

I've been reading again lately, so many things have come to my mind. Last night I was choosing the next book to read when I saw a book in the bookcase that had no title. It's not a book. No, it's a book? He was none other than the eBook Reader in the picture.
Oh, the thought of buying a guy like this goes by. I stayed away from the book for a while, and naturally he couldn't see the light in the bookcase. Paper books are still natural and comfortable, but when I first bought ebook readers, I read many books with this device. The advantage is that carrying a reader can carry hundreds or thousands of books, making it so comfortable and easy to use batteries for a long time. The disadvantages were always the need for light, the small screen, the inconvenience of tagging and the inconvenience of moving to the desired page.
And I read many books with tablet that I bought a long time ago. The advantage of tablet is that it can use many apps like cell phone, and it can read books, read magazines, and get fast and have many advantages, but the disadvantage of being tired of eye and tagging are also inconvenient.
And the remaining one is a paperback book that strongly exudes analog fidelity. It's heavy and...It's scary.Oh, I don't know the drawbacks. It's a book. Yes, books are books. I guess it's still the case. Considering that I read the documents in detail in my office, I don't have to explain that it's because of readability, and fancy IT devices are always comfortable.
What about you? ^^
