Today's T'ai Chi Chih practice was filled with anticipation. It was overcast and practically raining. But not quite yet ... Usually TCC practice energizes me but by the end of this practice I was more than ready--and willing--to lie down for a nap.
No such luck. Instead I headed off to work just as the sky began to fall. Rain poured down in sheets and, unable to escape it, I entered the air-conditioned library and immediately froze.
Luckily we were swamped with patrons and I hadn't a moment to sit still and chill. Two hours after my shift began it felt as though I'd worked a full afternoon/evening shift. Despite the flurry of activity, though, I stayed relatively calm and collected (I do think that earlier TCC practice helped!).
And now the time is here for me to be still and chill....
