Tai chi today. The second year ends.
It’s hard to know what to say about it. There’s this interdependence in the work, that I know I couldn’t have done this without some support from my lady and my family and my friends — and of course the commentators here. At the same time, it’s a very solitary working: get up in the morning, do the forms, sit down, write about them… and tomorrow do the same thing. Some days are better and easier than others; other days are a trial to begin and easy to finish; others are a disaster from beginning to end. And it doesn’t matter if the day is individually good or bad; the question is, are you doing it?
I have to admit that at this point, I haven’t decided what to do about Year Three.
