Temple of Heaven

Here in the mornings, retired adults gather daily.

They meet with their friends to dance, exercise, play board games, relax and chat.  It happens every day, it is a social outlet.  Women retire at age 55, men at age 60 and it all depends on your profession.  A physician will not retire until later in life.  When your talent is in high demand, you have to wait a little longer before you become a regular at The Temple of Heaven.

I tried the rhythmic moves using what looks like a badminton racquet and ball.  It isn’t as easy at it seems.  What I enjoyed most was the music and the dancing couples.  What a great way to start each morning!
