Flying Kites in Shanghai

Jet lag kept me from sleeping in China, so at 6am, I decided to go for a run along the boardwalk in Shanghai. From a distance I saw kites in the sky, and I thought, “Oh, how sweet…parents flying kites with their kids before school starts.”

As I approached, I realized it wasn’t children, but older gentlemen flying home-made kites. What a delight it was to witness these men enjoying one of life’s simple pleasures. #joyfulessence

P.S. I kicked myself for not bringing my phone to snap some pics, but thankfully there are many wonderful photographers to help capture this joyful moment.
