No matter what you do, don't forget to read and share the older buds' stories. After all, this humble blog reunited a mother and daughter not too long ago:
The Shofuso Japanese House and Garden
Last week my great niece and I took a tour of the Shofuso Japanese House and Garden located in the West Philadelphia section of Fairmount Park. I planned for many years to visit the Shofuso Japanese House and Garden but never had the opportunity to do so.
The serenity and elegance of the Shofuso House with its many waterfalls, rock gardens and weeping willow trees left me with a sense of peace and tranquility. I was transported to 17th century Japan and experienced the simplicity and beauty of this Japanese house.
The first thing required is to remove your shoes before entering the house. The tour guide explained every facet and function of the house. She thoroughly explained the ritual of the tea ceremony and what all the gestures represent.
For an experience away from the stress of life and a view of an entirely different lifestyle and an environment yields a restoration of mind, body and spirit, I would highly recommend a visit the Shofuso Japanese House and Garden.
04.11.2019The Story About Myself
I was born in Hunan China. When I was young, I follow my parents to escape mainland to Hong Kong in order escape being killed by Communists. I attend the primary school and secondary school at Hong Kong then went to Taiwan to attend the college over there. Then back to Hong Kong I get B.A. degree at the University of Taiwan.
When I was at Hong Kong I get teachers job at then I taught at school many year. Then move to United States in order to help my uncle’s restaurant which located at North Phila. But my uncle’s restaurant business is not so good. He sold the restaurant. Then I get a job from my uncle’s friend. I worked there as manager many years. I like my job so much though the salary is not so good, but still can help my family.
I like study bible, and go to church, when I have spare time.
There's lots of different ways to keep in touch with the older buds in your life. If you can't be there in person, please call them, email them, or message them on social media. And if they're using teleconferencing or remote events for the first time, give them a call and help them set things up. Check in on them to see how well they're getting used to these programs. You can share your older buds' stories through our portal right here, and you can volunteer as a transcriber (completely remotely) by emailing us at info@bestdayofmylifesofar.
