Portrait of Bae

As I was driving around Mojave, California, USA, I couldn’t help but notice Bae’s beautiful bonsai trees at the side of the road (see below). I decided to stop and talk to her. Bae was originally from Seoul, Korea, and had lived in the United States for 12 years, primarily in Los Angeles, California, USA.

Before she came to the United States, Bae did the exact same thing that she was doing when I met her, and that was that she and her husband put together “Japanese plants.” In the US, after assembling the plants, they sold the plants to her husband’s friend who, in turn, distributed them to various retailers to “sell to people to take home.”

About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?
