Tai Chi Y4d160: pretend

I’d like to pretend that I got up and I did an hour of tai chi this morning. But I can’t. I got up, did one iteration of the form, and went back to bed. Part of it is that today is my last day, before the start of the new school year. faculty re-orientation starts tomorrow. That weighs heavily on my mind. That means today is my last day of vacation. But I don’t really take vacations from tai chi. It’s just this constant thing. Except today it wasn’t.

Today’s title, pretend, comes from the fact that I kept pretending I was going to get up and do it again. I kept pretending I was going to do all of my tai chi today; I just never did. I wish I could say that it was the right thing to do, but I don’t think it was. It just happens to be that it’s the way my practice shook out today.
