Worlds Collide in China

We arrived safe in China.

We sat on the hotel lobby floor, thousands of miles from home, waiting to get our room keys.  Gracefully and casually, a Chinese girl walks by and sits down at the grand piano to our left.  She opens her music book and begins playing music for us.  Beautiful music.  Music that awakens me from the lethargy of long flights.

I look at her, with her cute shoes and head-band, and wonder what it took for our worlds to collide in that moment in that hotel lobby in Tianjin, China.

The answer I found for myself was simple yet somehow mysterious and magical.

Hours in the pool and hours at the piano created this intersection of lives.

Worlds so far apart became worlds two meters apart because of some talent, some hard work and a lot of acquired skill.

    . Air Canada strike has given me 5 hours wait at Beijing airport to ponder the answeres to lifes tough questions. Everything you need you already have. People spend their whole lives looking to fullfill desires from external sources when everything they need to be happy and fullfilled exists in them already.

      Ya… The thing is, we understand this truth, it’s been heard before…but do we believe it in the core of our being? Our behaviour probably shows whether we do or not.

      Nice to bump into you again! So random!
