Yesterday, I played badminton with my colleagues. I remember when I was young, I often played badminton with my father. He was a member of the badminton club in his office. So he brought my brother and me to the court at his workplace, and taught us how to play badminton. Since I preferred sedentary activities, like reading books or playing computer games at that time, I felt that I was unwillingly forced to practice badminton. When I reached to the age of increasing academic pressures, I didn't play badminton for a long time. However, yesterday my colleagues invited me to play badminton after work. Finally, after many years I had the chance to play it again. Surprisingly, I found that my body still remembered how to react, how to swing the racquet. On the other hand, because of a lack of exercise, my muscles were so weak. Sometimes, I could not run fast enough to catch the ball. Even so, I felt I was nimble enough to play decently. All thanks my parents who gave me the opportunity to experience a rewarding exercise. It also reminded me of the memories of playing badminton with my father. The childhood's memory became so overwhelming. I really want to play badminton with my father once again. Unfortunately, my father is old now, and not fit enough to do intense exercise anymore. Suddenly, a kind of sadness came to my mind. Why was I so reluctant to play badminton at that time? I wished I could have presented a better attitude at that time.
But I comforted myself and I realized should not dwell in the past anymore. Though my father might not be able to play badminton with me, he can still do other exercises with me. Now, it is my turn to accompany with him. And this time I hope to give him a happy memory.
「桃花塢裡桃花庵，桃花庵下桃花仙。 桃花仙人種桃樹，又摘桃花換酒錢。」讓人看到一幅美麗浪漫的景像，詩人將自己比作桃花仙人般愜意自在。「酒醒只在花前坐，酒醉還來花下眠。 半醉半醒日復日，花落花開年復年。但願老死花酒間，不願鞠躬車馬前。」他天天喝酒賞花過日子，寧願當瀟灑的隱士也不願追求功名利祿。「若將花酒比車馬，彼何碌碌我何閒。」那些人還不如詩人能享有這樣的閒情。「別人笑我太瘋癲，我笑他人看不穿。 不見五陵豪傑墓，無花無酒鋤作田。」這段話特別感動人，也是我最喜歡的句子。看似灑脫的人生態度，卻隱藏了詩人仕途失意的無奈，他的人生體悟也值得我們省思。
