Today marks the last day of 2015. A few days ago, in December, the temperature in the Arctic Ocean climbed to 1C, fifty degrees above the average temperature. The polar ice, and the Greenland glaciers, are both likely to melt in the next three to five years. At home, local temperatures are such that the snow is already showing through the snow of the last few days. That doesn’t normally happen this time of year. My dad blames it on El Niño, because that’s what the business papers tell him. It feels different than that. Apparently it’s a changed world. We’ll see if anything happens to respond to that change.
Me, I did tai chi. Just one form for today. I knocked something in my ankle yesterday and the sons and stand-on-left-foot bits were uncomfortable. Not painful, just a little weird. If I was actually in combat, I’m sure it would be much more painful. For now, it’s just odd.
I’ve decided to participate in the Strategic Sorcery blog go-around that has emerged from the community of students around Jason Miller’s course of the same name. I also collated the top posts of 2015 for your reading pleasure. None f them were tai chi posts, though; weird, right? Would you like a list of the best tai chi writing of 2015?
