Earlier today, I went to the park simply to get out and enjoy some of the sun doing Tai ji. Enjoying my practice, with some children playing flag football in the distance, I spied an Elderly Chinese man holding his “grand daughter” at his bosom. Upon finishing the form, He walks up to me smiles, and stands parallel to me in and begins to embrace the ball. I follow him and embrace the ball also and he quickly corrects some of my posture. He just shakes his hand or moves his hand to his hip to gesture, “like this.” I make my corrections, and all this while he has his “grandchild” at his shoulder. He continues doing the form, and I follow. Impressed that he can do Tai ji with a toddler at his shoulder, I smile and say thanks upon finishing. He struggles with his English, stating that “She doesn’t understand English, yet.” Directing my attention to the child at his shoulder. I smile at her also, and say thank you, in English and Chinese. And say good-bye. I think I might of met two teachers today!
