in training

That is the way of a child, always in training, day in, day out, learning, practicing, repeating, trying again, discovering new ways and building the person they are meant to be. Training lives in the doing, in the actions we take repetitively until we reach our goal. There is such a great satisfaction gleaned from a good training, a sense of accomplishment, a sigh of relief that our faculties were put to good use, that we are closer to being who we were meant to be. An idle life has always caused a great fear in me and in the doing I find my greatest satisfaction.

Another lesson learned from children, the ones who are still closer to the true human way.

the little swimmer

Living in China means taking on some things that are integral in the make up of the Chinese society: training, discipline and repetition.

Swimming lessons have been a weekly routine in our 6 year old daughter’s life since she was 3. This was taken today during her swimming class.
