An exercise in futility with a road full of toads

The road was swarming with toads, zillions of adorable little suicidal toads. They had left the shallow water of the drainage ditch and were crossing the blacktop road to reach Valhalla, the promised land, Shangri la, or wherever it is that toads seek to go as they crawl out of the great muddy, ditch of life.The tiny toads were hopping aimlessly about in the road amidst the toad grease spots of those that had tried to make the journey before and had fatally encountered the great tires of fate. The way I saw it at the time was I had to rescue the little toads. So there I was, bent over and waving my arms, trying to shoo the wee beasties off the road.Have you ever tried to herd toads? Don’t, it is an exercise in futility.They defied my best efforts and shouted little toad obscenities at me. (Herding toads is like directing some people, fruitless and absolutely a waste of time.) A car was coming. I stopped herding toads and tried to assume a somewhat normal, if not dignified appearance so that I would not be mistaken for a stooped over, arm waving lunatic, dancing and cavorting in the middle of the road.Too late.The driver saw me before I saw him. He thinks I am a stooped over, arm waving lunatic, dancing and cavorting in the middle of the road. As he passed he stared suspiciously at me as he hurriedly rolled up his window and sped away. Split, splat, splut!  More cute little toads are transformed into even more cute little toad grease spots. Cute little idiot toads be darned.   Hmmm, I wonder. Do you suppose our Heavenly Father ever gets tired of trying to herd us out of the great highway of life? And we, just like the toads, disregard His efforts, and hop right back out into the road again. Yeah, I wonder.Live Fully,Love OpenlyAnd make a difference, todayCharles Towne is a longtime Apopka resident, member of Insp!re Church and a published author.

From the Hadong Hwagae Market to the Ssanggye Temple, cherry trees make a tunnel in spring, where people flock to enjoy the exquisite scenery. The cherry blossoms covering the road look as if the giant dragon is emitting up cherry blossoms as it moves. Once I stepped into a crowd and entered a cherry blossom tunnel. Seeing the pale pink petals blowing off in the wind, cover ing the sky and falling on the ground, I felt the sense of being in a surreal dream. When cherry blossoms are gone, the road turns into a quiet and tranquil place.Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkSave this picture!Site PlanSave this picture!© Youngchae ParkWe built a house on a hill overlooking that road. The name of the house, surrounded by stretched out mountains as well as this beautiful road, is Juck – e – jae. The name originates from the phrase in Hwagumkyeong (Buddhist scriptures), meaning ‘ to stay calm and admire. ’ Just like the name of the house, it was commissioned by a patron who just retired, moving to his wife’s hometown Hadong, to enjoy a quiet life. The site is located in the middle of Jiri – Mountain, and a stream flows smoothly between the mountain faces to join the Seomjin river. The owner of the house is a couple in their 60s who live with their elderly mother. Their children visit time to time. Because her family and friends are firmly rooted in her hometown, she felt comfortable to build this new home, unlike others moving to the countryside for their retirement in a strange place.Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkThe owners have been living quite carefree city – life in their apartments for a long time. After deciding to build a house, however, they began to dream a house with a vegetable garden and a wide yard in a rural village, just like they had lived in their childhood. Naturally, the exterior of the house had to look like Hanok (traditional Korean – style house). But it is too expensive to build an authentic Hanok now and their lifestyle has changed a great deal to be accommodated by old Hanok. Therefore, we used a common light – frame wood structure, but followed the spatial language of Hanok, connecting the interior and exterior of a house.Save this picture!Lower Floor PlanSave this picture!© Youngchae ParkSave this picture!Section 2Storage for clients ’ collections and old household items were provided economically in a limited scale of the house. The wife ’ s study room was placed close to their mother ’ s room. The second floor was designed as ‘Room of relations’, to be provided as guest space for relatives and children. After setting the program, the owner turned his eyes to the outside of the house rather than figuring out how to decorate the house. Throughout the construction, the big concerns of the client were what to plant, how to build up the axes, how to build the gardens and the reservoirs, how to manage the persimmon trees and chestnut trees.Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkIn a way, concentrating in the landscape matter seemed to be the right direction. We forget so easily that house eventually sets off on the ground. We cannot simply say that design of a residence ends with the physical building. The design of a real residence begins when we start to recover the land around. Like a cloud of smoke rising from the house, like the smell of warm soup that a mother prepares for the family dinner, like a cosy garden without careful attention, like the warmth of the words that we share among the family, we experience the warmly emotional connections with people who live together. Only then the interactions create the perfect temperature of the house and become the temperature of the life. This is what we expect from the house. Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkProject gallerySee allShow lessKanda Terrace / KEY OPERATION INC. / ARCHITECTSSelected ProjectsPedongkelan-YN House / HYJASelected Projects Share Geum G ang construction, Sangcheol Lee “COPY” Photographs:  Youngchae Park 2016 ArchDaily Photographs Juck-e-jae in Hadong / studio_GAONSave this projectSaveJuck-e-jae in Hadong / studio_GAON “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/889154/juck-e-jae-in-hadong-studio-gaon Clipboardlast_img read more
