The sign

by Meritxell Riera Prims

Last scene from John Huston‘s masterpiece The treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948), where Walter Huston and Tim Holt have just found out that a sandstorm has swept away the gold they had risked their lives to find.

I just found out today, after four and a half months of practice, that you’re not supposed to wash your 태권도 (Taekwondo) belt, ’cause if you do, you’re washing away all the effort you’ve been putting through all the time you’ve been dedicating to the training.

I’ve been washing my belt without knowing. And that’s been revealed at a very particular moment.

I guess that explains a lot.

That bitch life is full of signs.
