My college, quasi-boyfriend texted me yesterday to check in about Korea. We have a sweet acquaintance now, where he checks in from time to time, and we talk about his wife and daughters and life just a little bit. I told him I was taking my mom to Korea next month and want to live overseas again.
He said: “you only live once.”
I wonder if these concepts of a second of life, life after death, heaven and hell, are constructs created to oppress people, to subjugate women, to keep us from wanting more out of this one life we know we have.
