Yeah. Full set this morning: Two qi gong forms, and four tai chi forms. Had some difficulties with the second tai chi form, the one facing south. Stopped and began again. The carpet slipped during a half spin during the north-facing tai chi form; stopped, removed the carpet, and began again.
I’m teaching tai chi again for the third time this year on Mondays. So I’ve just done a full set in about 45 minutes; and then I’ll be doing a second set later today. It’s going to be a good tai chi day.
Oh, and I’m wearing a shirt that a friend game me. It’s a pale green, and it says, “Get excited and make stuff.” This shirt has usually been a little tight on me. Today, as I was doing the westward-facing form, I noticed that it wasn’t really tight any more. My weight may be the same, but some of that weight is becoming (denser) muscle.
Today is the Feralia, a festival that helped mark the end of the Roman year at the end of February. Today is for making peace with the dead; tomorrow, the Charistia, is for making peace with the living; and Wednesday, the Terminalia, is for making peace with the boundaries of the community.
