Tai chi Y2D355: movement

There is not much to say about today’s tai chi. I did the two qi gong forms with good breathwork; several popping sounds confirmed that the usual kinks and limits built up over the previous 24 hours were working themselves out. The tai chi form had good breathwork, and a nice flow to it, and it took about the right amount of time. I don’t really know what else to say. Sometimes things go smoothly, so smoothly that there’s nothing worth finding fault in. As I finished, I thought, “well, that was just about perfect,” even though I don’t believe in perfect tai chi.

Well. Maybe today, I do. Or maybe it’s better to say faultless. Nothing stood out as cracked or broken in my work today, and for today, that will be enough.
