Sister Circle will meet each Monday from 7 p.m. - 9 p.m. in the Student Multicultural Center.

Summer Palace Beijing, China

Photographed by Garmai-K & fellow classmates

Talk about serenity…probably the most peaceful scenery I’ve ever experienced. Being in the midst of such calmness and lack of commotion truly made me realize how much money American youth spends in efforts to find inner peace. “I need to go to the spa, I need to go shopping, I need to get my nails done..”. The youth of today, myself included at times, consume in efforts to conserve or find peace. At Summer Palace, I watched the elderly practice traditional relax methods such as water coloring on the ground. A lot of Chinese people find peace and relaxation in activities that are free. FREE. We have a cramp in our back for a prolonged time, we’re looking for the nearest masseuse to cash out on. On the contrary, typical elderly Chinese woman is looking for a nice patch of grass to do her Tai Chi…for free.

In essence, I guess the best things in life are in fact free.
