Wow. A year. Already.

A year in China. Seems like only a few months ago I was tromping around the Shanghai Expo, but it’s been over a year ago now. In that time, I’ve learned a lot about myself and about others here and there. Life does have a way of going on, sometimes whether you want it to or not, sometimes whether you notice it or not.

A long time ago, it seems to me, I first heard someone talk about how time passes; they said the days are sometimes very long but the years go by in a flash. I know a little more about that now.

Last year this time, the osmanthus was blooming in Shanghai.  Take a look at the reference for sweet Osmanthus (or Tea Olive) here  It’s here again, so I know the time has passed. But it’s been a quick year.
