Life is good

Sometimes things happen and you just have to think - wow.

Our computer tech guy at school is the most interesting character and knows a lot about things you rarely think about. I'm not sure what comment I made that got him started on Tai Chi but he looked at my room and told me he needed to practice and my room was perfect. It was after school and he invited me to learn basic Tai Chi moves. I laughed and said, sure. I'd be crazy to pass up the opportunity to learn, so we took our poses and went through a series of contortions that actually felt good after all was said and done.

He made a comment that most students of Tai Chi are women because men don't have the emotional stamina to withstand failing at the complicated moves and practicing until they master them. It's a very graceful set of exercizes, but not easy to learn. Even now I only remember one of the thirty some odd moves we did today. Too fun. He said he'd come once or twice a week from now on and teach me. We'll see. I hope he does. It was a great stretching activity.

Okay, so just more info. I'll be at a book signing tomorrow in Austin. I hope the rain doesn't keep folks away.

Oh I wish I could be there, but we can't make it out to Austin. Best of luck and I hope it goes very well. Enjoy! :-)

Thanks Bethany. It's going to be a wet trip and that's for sure.

I wish I could have made the signing, but alas, it's a little far and the rain was fierce. But, your booksigning gave me an idea. I called Borders in Temple and set one up for Oct. 3rd. They were very accomodating.

My son tried to teach me Tai Chi. I'm not a good student!
