Today, for a change, I did my taiji form and Five Golden Coins in the kitchen, around my grandmother’s dining room table. My rules for myself were that I had to start and end in the same position — on the west side of the table, behind the chair, facing east. I had to do the form once-through, and aware-ful-ly pass through all the postures in the Form, but I had to make them fit together in such a way that I passed through the whole room, all the way around the table.
It took twice as long as the form usually takes me, and I almost burned my dinner that was cooking on low heat in the background. But it was a lot of fun.
