Goodbye Old Friend

The owner of this bike left this world two days ago. He was my neighbor and a wonderful old man. We became great friends even though we hardly ever talked. I taught him to say “What’s up?” when he saw me and “See Ya! we he left. He had great interest in my drawing and would bring some fruit or tea to the house so he could sit and look at my drawings. He was approaching 90 when he died and I am so sorry to see him go. I have learned some important life lessons living in Taiwan. What this old gentleman taught me is this. We are so, so, so, so much the same and just a little different. I wish everyone could remember this and try reaching out to people a little more than we do. Sometimes, just a smile will change your whole day. That’s what he taught me. Thank you old buddy. Rest in peace.
