I did four iterations of the tai chi form, and then Druidry.  I like the growing connections between one set of practices and the other as a set of conscious iterations of four. It was a longer piece of Druidry this morning, too, and I’ve enjoyed that work a great deal the last few days. 

Some of the practical issues I’m dealing with these days are a sore elbow and a bit of pain in my left hip. I really shouldn’t carry my wallet in my back right pocket — when I sit on it, it pulls my right and left hips out of alignment. Maybe women are better off for not having pockets in their clothing — carrying stuff in your pockets raises your chiropractor bills. 

There are one hundred five days left in this tai chi cycle, until I’ve done another year. What’s improved? What do I need to work on still? My goal was to get up to a reliable hour of practice daily. I hasn’t been practical. It’s been easy to commit to it when the weather is nice and I’m getting enough sleep. Not so easy when there’s growing darkness and cold and illness in the world outside, and the work is hard.  Rethink revise and realign to the goal? Or recognize its impracticality from the get go? More on this in the next few days, but advice welcomed…
