Something new….

….headed out to my first Tai Chi class…..

I’ll let you know how it goes….


  1. Oh Tammy, I can't wait to hear all about it. Have never done Tai Chi myself but when I was visiting Taiwan I went to the hilltop early in the morning to watch the elder men do Tai Chi. The elder semi-toothless wives were sitting along a ragged rock fence/border for the park.

    I had my camera around my neck and so wanted to take a picture but wanted to be mannerly and ask. So I motioned to the men and only one would acknowledge my eye contact and he waved me off as a 'no'. So of course I respected his wishes and did not take a picture.

    Even tho I didn't get that beautiful, graceful motion or forms in film, the next best highlight was being invited by the elder women to sit by their side along the rock formation, as they tapped beside where they were seated. Oh my but was I elated to be accepted by them in their country and their piece of morning peace and serenity.

    The picture you display on your blog reminds me so well of that great visit to Taiwan. Thanks.

  2. Tammy:
    I am so proud of you!
    That's what I most respect about you.

  3. I love doing Tai Chi but had to drop off my classes because of my farm schedules. I kept it up for a while but little by little put it aside. I still can do some forms but have forgotten some little parts here and there.

    I have the whole course on tape and was going to try to incorporate it in my home schedule but it never happened. JB
