Tai chi Y4D88: slow sun

The Sun is slowing down. Another week and it will pause in the sky for a couple of days, neither making the day longer nor making it shorter. Solstice. Sure, it will still rise in the east and set in the west. But to those who watch, it will appear to pause in its round, holding the day at its appointed length. 

I rose a little after 7am this morning, showered, and went to the car. I was underway by 7:45 on a trip into Boston of some importance.  I only reached home about 20 minutes ago, and the tai chi I performed then could best be described as “perfunctory.”


    • My lady said to me yesterday, “it’s almost time for the days to shorten again.” And I had a heartsick moment at that. “It’s not even solstice yet! I’m not ready!” But of course it’s true, even if I AM ready or no.
