We all receive the mass e mailings. Every so often I read an article sent my way. This one is one of those. I crave entertaining reading more than I used to now that my address reads Beijing, China. Each day I learn at least one new thing about Chinese culture. With each new friend I make and every relationship created, I continue to grow as a human being. I think about Max Spector, my old boss from my high school job. Max told me (when he was in his eighties) that he never stopped learning. Every day of Max’s life he learned at least one new thing. Max made it past ninety. I’ll always miss him.
This article provides insight into some of the many many many differences between Chinese and western cultures. I’m not certain how many folks will understand it. It may be reserved for westerners who spend a considerable amount of time in Asia.
