I spent my Sunday in China giving and grading exams on campus. Afterwards, a colleague showed me this lovely riverbank across from my office–a lovely place to have lunch or meditate in between classes.
I have been enjoying gelato flavors in China that are new to me — like egg yolk!
Anubis loves to get in his bag and travel the world–perhaps I’ll share some photos from his 18th birthday in China!
One of the best aspects of Anubis’ acupuncture in China is getting to meet so many other disabled chihuahuas getting treatment–including other chihuahuas! Anubis has been enjoying making new friends as have I (fun to practice speaking Chinese with their parents).
Anubis and I have both been learning a lot about Traditional Chinese Medicine in China–and we also are both benefitting from acupuncture here.
Anubis began his acupuncture treatment in China in good spirits–at the time, he could not really stand due to his disc disorder, but thanks to his treatments he’s walking again.
Eighteen year old Anubis is still kicking thanks to the help of so many caring hearts in China–grateful for all of the help in keeping him alive!

Anubis has spent alot of time these past several months at the vet–he is, sadly, dying, but getting top notch care–including acupuncture! Posts to follow on Anubis’ acupuncture adventures in China!
I went book shopping on the river the other evening on my evening stroll and was so happy to find Frankenstein in Baghdad which I have been wanting to read–perfect for my poolside fun in these remaining days of summer here in China.
I was very excited to view this stela depicting Bodhidharma who brought Zen Buddhism to China when I was recently in Xi’an.
Right before the global pandemic, my friend visited me in China from Mongolia. It was the first of what I thought would be many visits by friends–but then the global pandemic forced China to close its borders. Fortunately, because life has mostly returned to normal in China, I’ve been able to do a little travel of my own–perhaps I will share some photos…
