I celebrated “Buddha Day” actually. Somehow I ended up being one of the last ones there. When the students were done the parents took them and ran. I hung out with a cute old couple. He was 84 years old. He explained that, “The peach represents long life.” He shook his fake peach dumpling at me.
I chuckled. We spoke and his wife was motherly to me. It was super cool.
Their daughter shows up and she runs the place. “That’s our daughter! She’s very busy!”
She meets me and offers me a job teaching Tai Chi at a school…
“Happy Buddha Day!” (It was actually April 8.)
