What Is Love...?

Hi, dears,

What is your definition of love; romance, friendship, caring, consideration, thoughtfulness, family, marriage? To many of us in the Baefamily, Our Charming Prince is a shining example of what love really means, otherwise we might not think of him as being Ours. 

I have noticed that many Family members worry a lot about Yong Joon-ssi. To me this is one of the many ways they use to express their love for him. Others worry about their other favorite celebrities. Again I see this as an expression of their true affection and caring for those individuals, and I give them credit for being so loving. 
 Some people might think that the Family who worry a lot do so unnecessarily, but I disagree with that thinking. Sometimes caring involves worrying. I ask myself, 'what kind of person would I be if I didn't worry about the people I love'? I think the answer is that I would rather care too much than too little.

Please, don't misunderstand me. I am not criticizing any of my dear Baefamily members. I have not now, nor for as long as I have been a Family member, had any reason to be critical of anyone in our lovely family. I am just saying that I Admire the loving attitudes demonstrated by all of them, whatever forms those attitudes may take.

I know that some people are less affectionate, but that doesn't mean they are any less loving. I also know that all of our Baesisters, with whom I have become acquainted here on the net, have shown a loving and supportive unity; not just toward me, but toward each other. I admire that, too, and I admire them as well.  They are being true to Our Charming Prince's philosophy of "Humane Living".
As for that wonderful guy, I believe he might actually be even more of an affectionate 'hugger' than I am. That is saying a lot, because I hug all of my friends; both men and women. I live to hug!!!

One thing which I have learned in life is that it isn't as important how you love, or whom you love. Those choices must, and should, be left up to the individual. (I know I wouldn't like someone telling me whom I could or couldn't, or should or shouldn't love.) The important part is how much you love that person or persons. If worrying is your way of saying 'I love you', I have to say I respect that.

For the Family who are not worriers, I know you have loving hearts with more calm outlooks on life and its ups and downs. I admire that, and often wish I had a bit more calmness inside of me.

Still, if we all were the same in our feelings and outlooks, wouldn't it be a dull world? I know I would definitely not like that. I like finding emotional differences in the people I meet, because I know deep down we are all the same; we are human beings. That makes the differences mean less than the similar things we share; like our love for Bae Yong Joon.

Love to all Family, everywhere.

The Frustrations...

Hi, dear Family.
Ahhh, the frustrations of computer malfunctions, glitches, etc. I call them computer 'blues', even though I don't really think of them that way. Blue is such an awesome color; actually the most gorgeous color in the world, in all its glory of tints and shades.

Computer frustrations are not so very unlike the frustrations of waiting for news of our beloved Charming Prince. Is he or isn't he going to act in the T.V. drama, 'Dream High'? How long must we Family wait to learn this information? If he does decide to star in DH, will the show be as good as his other dramas? These and many other questions are waiting to be answered by the only person in the world who truly knows the answers: Our Charming Prince; Bae Yong-Joon.

So, I guess I'm feeling a little 'blue' right now, waiting for Our BYJ to decide what he wants to do, and wondering whether he will tell us what his plans are, anytime soon. Frustration is the right word, alright. It perfectly describes what I, personally, am feeling right this moment, waiting and wondering...

Love to all Family, everywhere. Anna

Special Posting...

Hi, Dear Family.

I know it is now 7 June in Asia, but I have just learned about something. I am posting here to say that I hope all of the Family in Asia had a peaceful Korean Memorial Day (현충일)(顯忠日) (Hyeon Chung-il). And a blessed and peaceful Korean Memorial Day to all the Family in all Western countries, where it is June 6, today. Here in America, as some of you know, we have a Memorial Day observance, too. Ours falls on the last Sunday in May, and we take flowers and visit family grave sites and pay our respects, pretty much the same as they do in South Korea. Then, some families have a quiet Sunday dinner in honor of our departed loved ones. These customs are very beautiful, but sometimes sad, if someone has recently passed away. It is good to know people in other countries have these kinds of occasions, for remembering the family and friends who are no longer there. But, their spirits and memories will remain alive as long as we remember and cherish them. Take care and be well. Love to all Family everywhere. Anna
