Summer in China

Today I was walking through the park in Kaifaqu in a haze of sunshine, sea air and June roses. I saw a little girl, around 5 or 6, in a white princess dress walking through the summer flowers with her mother. They were talking to each other, and to my surprise and delight, I found that I could recognize a few words in their conversation. Water for one. And there.

But it wasn’t until the little girl pulled up her dress and squatted that I realized what the mother was saying.

    I’ve had two similar experiences… one when a older woman seemed to be checking out the bushes for some reason… and then just squatted down and gave the weeds a little spring golden shower.

    The other was when I saw a nice little dog resting under a tree… filled me with a sense of “awe cute”… and it rested there for a month – by which point I felt differently about the “cute” part… what with all the flies.
