"He asked his father like this, 'why does pain exist?' 'In order to make changes in action.'"

Currently I'm reading a book titled "Le Papillon Des Étoiles" by Bernard Werber, a French writer, and these two phrases from a page I read today made me contemplate for a short while. It doesn't necessarily have to be pain to make some changes but sometimes, or often, a sort of shock treatment brings the most prompt result. I know today's caption is not really about things in Seoul but, if you let me make some excuses, the photo of a light was taken is Seoul and the book is no. 1 on the best-selling list at the moment.

Bernard Werber is a good fiction writer. I didn't know that he was so famous in Korea.

PS : Nice photo

언제부턴가 님의 블로그를 즐겨 보고 있습니다.
제가 굉장히 한적한 미국 시골에 쳐박혀 살고 있다 보니 이런 사진들이 참 정겹군요.
앞으로도 좋은 사진 많이 부탁드립니다.

Thanks a million for all your lovely comments! It is you who keep me motivated.^o^/

Sudoksa(Eric) - Mr Werber is a superstar in Korea, one of the most beloved foreign writer.

Sejin - 한글 코멘트를 보니 반갑네요. 어딜 가도 복잡한 서울에 살다 보니 한적한 곳이 절실할 때가 있습니다. 즐겁게 보아주셔서 고맙습니다.

Olivier - Finally I have your comment in my blog as well.^-^V It's great you always write both captions to your posts and comments to others in bi-lingual. The light was actually being shaken a little by the wind from an air conditioner at that time so I had to wait until it moved less.

Don - What would you say if your child asked you this question?

Eliane - I strongly recommend this book to you. Though I just started reading it, given that the impression I've got from his previous books, I'm sure he won't disappoint you at all. And please, once you read the book, let me know how the conversation between a dad and his son is written in French.

BW - Thanks a lot!
