Tai Chi Y2D37: better

That’s better. It’s nice to cycle back into regular practice and feel like one has given the work its appropriate attention after an absence.

But there’s also this elegant discovery: the work, the daily practice, isn’t a sprint. It isn’t a marathon either. It’s none of those contest-based metaphors at all. It’s just what. You. Do.

Some people garden. Others jog. Others make macramé. Whatever. This is just what I do, and that’s it. It’s not a fight nor a contest. There’s no reward and no punishment for doing or not doing, and there’s no success nor failure. Does there need to be more than that?

No. Not really.
