The early light of dawn coming over the hill came through the blinds in the office today, as I did tai chi. Friday was the last day of school before the Thanksgiving break. So today is the first week day that I have been able to sleep in. Alas, for me it is a comments writing day, so I have other work to be done. Still, the light is beautiful.

I did tai chi this morning, and 22 push-ups, to the four direction. I am genuinely joy in the disorientation which comes from facing the wrong side of the room during box ears with fists. It is not really the wrong direction, rather the correct direction when starting from a direction other than east. But it still feels wrong. And what I am discovering is that it will take some practice before it feels normal.
