How to explain the feeling of arriving in Taiwan? How to explain the better me that emerges? How to explain the multitude of luxuries? The overstaffing of department stores, with young, uniformed men hired just to bow as you leave. The cleanliness, efficiency, gentleness, seamless technology, everywhere.
As I begin to bow and smile, as people bow and smile at me, I start to feel more tender, considerate, gentle, compassionate, refined. Better. A person more in tune with the world.
