Make your soul grow by Kurt Vonnegut

  어쩌면 자극을 찾는 일은 단면적인지도 모른다. 자동차 엑셀처럼, 엘리베이터 버튼처럼 밟으면 진격하고, 누르면 원하는 곳에 닿는 궁극의 해결책으로써 롤모델을 찾아헤맸다. 나에게 선망의 대상이 되어줄 존재의 부재를 깨닫는 순간은 허탈했다. 그런 나에게 위로가 된 커트 보네거트(Kurt Vonnegut)의 편지.

Dear Xavier High School, and Ms. Lockwood, and Messrs Perin, McFeely, Batten, Maurer and Congiusta:

I thank you for your friendly letters. You sure know how to cheer up a really old geezer (84) in his sunset years. I don’t make public appearances any more because I now resemble nothing so much as an iguana.

What I had to say to you, moreover, would not take long, to wit: Practice any art, music, singing, dancing, acting, drawing, painting, sculpting, poetry, fiction, essays, reportage, no matter how well or badly, not to get money and fame, but to experience becoming, to find out what’s inside you, to make your soul grow.

Seriously! I mean starting right now, do art and do it for the rest of your lives. Draw a funny or nice picture of Ms. Lockwood, and give it to her. Dance home after school, and sing in the shower and on and on. Make a face in your mashed potatoes. Pretend you’re Count Dracula.

Here’s an assignment for tonight, and I hope Ms. Lockwood will flunk you if you don’t do it: Write a six line poem, about anything, but rhymed. No fair tennis without a net. Make it as good as you possibly can. But don’t tell anybody what you’re doing. Don’t show it or recite it to anybody, not even your girlfriend or parents or whatever, or Ms. Lockwood. OK?

Tear it up into teeny-weeny pieces, and discard them into widely separated trash recepticals. You will find that you have already been gloriously rewarded for your poem. You have experienced becoming, learned a lot more about what’s inside you, and you have made your soul grow.

God bless you all!

My first styling challenge. Sneak peek of StyleShare promo video Get ready to be surprised!

'스타일링'이라는 것을 처음 해보았다. 패션은 모델과 옷과 누군가의 감각이 하나의 유기체를 탄생시키는 일. 그야말로 창조의 영역이다.

How do you spend your time at a fashion show

신광호 에디터가 쇼를 감상하는 5초와 나머지 관람객들의 5초는 현저히 다르다. 패션쇼의 ‘프론트로우’에는 신광호 에디터가 앉는게 맞다.
