shaman bugs (happy midsummer's day)

(c) Jaakko Hakulinen

사진에 있는 벌레가 전설, 시(詩), 블러그에서만 가능한 논리로 나하고 한국무속(巫俗)의 연결을 제공해준다. 이 <무당벌레>의 핀란드말 이름(leppäkerttu)과 나의 성씨에 들어가 있는 나무가 (leppä, 오리나무) 같으니까.

오늘 우리나라에서 <하지절>(夏至節)날인데, 다들 특별히 지내지 않으셔도 잘 계시길 바란다. 날이 벌써 짧아지고 있다는 것을 잊지 마시길.

The bug in the picture provides the connection between me and Korean shamanism, with the logic possible in myths, poetry, and blogging. The Finnish name of this mudangbôlle ("shaman bug", ladybird, leppäkerttu), has the name of the same tree (leppä, alder) as my family name.

Today is Midsummer's day.
