In China it is normal to see people of eighty years jumping to the curve. They do it with its friendly, the family or the grandsons. In great places or tiny alleys. As if they finished only leaving class and they had minutes to enjoy the recreation. Although to Cao Ming it has still not given him to jump to the curve, this musician of 63 years also stays in form.

It says that its secret is to touch to the battery four hours to the day, to eat well and to enjoy its grandsons. When him comment that sees very well him and that it seems young much more, responds to me as if suddenly it had turned to me into his disciple: In China tenth that one becomes old when it cannot move the hands nor the feet. Fjate in as I touch to the battery and the guitar. Move I them. I am young. Not only I touch by music, also by the life.

Thus never you are made old. In Peking, other people majors prefer to enjoy their youth the Taichi, the meditation and another type of exercises. When the majority of young people still is between sheets, many already have been several hours practicing Taichi in the parks. It is a spectacle to rise to 6 in the morning and to go to the parks to contemplate his slow but accurate movements, like small turtles that advance little by little but in the precise direction. Fascinated by the vitality of the people majors and their paper in the Chinese society, I went once again with all questions to the store of bicycles of the old Lao Wang. In this occasion I pillaged waiting for clients to him and remembering phrases of Confucius: in the Chinese traditional society the filial mercy and the importance of respecting to the majors was something almost sacred. The major to have of a son was to take care of of its parents. Now the things are changing. The young people every time worry less about their majors . Lao Wang explained to me how in the Chinese traditional culture the children were forced to follow the advice of their parents, to prepare their funerals and to take care of of them until the last day. At present and in the great cities, the things have changed much. Some children even go to contracts legal to arrange the familiar relations: the children commit themselves to be pleased their studies while they are young in exchange for which the majors them do not bother when its oldness arrives. The social relations change in China to huge steps. Although less and less, the majors still enjoy an enviable prestige and a vitality. At present, the spaces in the parks are thought so that the young people run, but also so that the people majors can make their exercises of Taichi. And the old ones still compete with the children to see who jump better to the curve. Daniel Mndez Original author and source of the article.
