Hyelim Chang a disciple of Huh, Baekryun under the pen name of Uije

 

 one of ten artists representing Korea, majored in Oriental painting and

 

 won a lot of prizes in Korea. When she went over to the United States

 

 in 1989 and settled in Princeton, she pursued further study with a major

 

in Sculpture at FIT. She received the Culture Aweard that is a great

 

honor for painters by attempting to integrate Western painting with

 

Oriental painting. She has developed her own friendly style or painting

 

 in which she has usually expressed the beauty and surrounding

 

environment of Princeton.

 

 

In the beginning of Autumn

 

I should to see the joy of harvest by now, however,

 

during summer, I’ve worked hard on farming, but there was no way to avoid the

 

changes of nature.

 

Especially worse for this summer, there were lots of natural disasters like

 

sweltering heat, hurricanes and storms which left many people suffering.

 

To solve these problems in international ways,

 

Amidst the huge controversies among the countries in the world, global warming

 

 is still wandering and torturing.

 

Countries already have an answer, but the international environment is already

 

entangled.

 

Years from now, how are we supposed to survive from the nature’s warning?

 

Not in a handful of dust, but for materialism. We have been receiving the

 

benefits of civilization in modern times, which led to the imprudent land

 

development that has spelled disaster for nature.

 

The earth is leaning because it can not overcome the amount of water caused by

 

 dam construction in China, the developed civilization of the United States has

 

 mainly caused the natural disasters.

 

Could any words be possible enough to console the victims who has lost

 

everything in their lives?

 

Recovery is the best way, but we should stop any act of developing civilization

 

 for

 

 human’s own benefit, which is definitely against the way of life and nature.

 

On July 17th and 18th, the sky unloaded over 200mm of water per hour and the

 

valleys were flooded, sweeping everything away.

 

Burning fire leaves ashes, but a rapid flooding swept everything away without a

 

trace.

 

Charlie, who had been my guard dog for four years, was sacrificed.

 

The massive flood hit Cheonan was well over four meters in width and height.

 

Four years ago, when green tea fields were being planted,

 

In order to maintain the natural forest, 300 pine trees that are over 100 years

 

old, regardless of permission, native Chosun cherry trees which are 250 years

 

old (Cherry blossom tree is Japanese chrysanthemum, so many people think it is

 

 from Japan, but it is originated in Korea), Alder trees and Castor aralias have

 

been able to survive from the disaster.

 

This tremendous flood is described as the worst in nearly fifty years, but it just

 

seemed like another moment in front of gigantic nature.

 

As a matter of fact, the cost has increased, but it is only a tin of dust compared

 

to the valley damages. Unfounded words which has not been proved by

 

historical

 

 facts or artifacts continue to echo down,

 

Life goes on with all those unfounded truths, so, but the more we live, the more

 

we must be at the hub of these chaos.

 

Because the trees were deeply rooted to make the base stronger in the flood.

 

As we can not live more than a hundred years, enjoying the benefits of

 

civilization,

 

all those wastes of civilization that we can not take any responsibility will be

 

swept away by the forces of nature like floods, scorching heat, heavy snow,

 

tornadoes, hurricanes, or pests, etc. Then again, we also use scientific skills of

 

civilization to prevent those disasters.

 

If you are accustomed to living in harmony with nature, you will be able to

 

 improve your life. How to find wisdom to overcome troubles, tears of joy in

 

working hard, and patience to find peace, knowing hot to heal myself is the

 

wisest. Many things can be under delusion when solved with money or material

 

things. I have to adapt myself to things I can not do with money and practice

 

myself from the very beginning.
