A New Lease

Lately, it seems, that every day is different yet the same. It was cooler today, but there was still sunshine; birdsong; and cat, dog, and goose lounging in the dirt and around the gardens.

And so, I joined them in midday. I practiced T'ai Chi Chih on the deck as I sat in place and contemplated the seated instructions that I recently located on the web. It occurred to me that I've tried to make seated TCC practice harder than it needs to be (based on the recommendations I found). I'm playing with simplifying my efforts and focusing on the bare essentials.

It felt good to practice after a morning during which I was highly aware of a painful, uncomfortable stomach. Now I feel better ... I have a new lease on life.
