|White crane spreads its wings!|
Derek had the idea of me trying Tai Chi. So far I have learned that I like the names they have for each move like, "Part The Wild Horse's Mane" and "White Crane Spreads its Wings". It takes a bit of patience to learn every move properly. There is a proper order for things; heal down, toes down, shift weight, etc. The idea is to learn every movement so well that you can do it automatically, and correctly. It's kind of like doing a super slow motion dance. I think it is fun, and I will like it better when I know more than 3 of the forms.
There are some aspects of health that I don't struggle with but someone in my family does. I have a husband and some children who have trouble getting to sleep, and staying asleep. I found Jake on his bedroom floor huddled in a ball this morning upset that he hadn't slept all night. Thursday night it was Dan who couldn't sleep all night and the poor boy had bags under his eyes by afternoon! Hopefully I can study out a way to help them sleep better.
I will like to study play because it sounds fun to find new things I like to do, and I will enjoy studying forms of meditation to help me stay calm in challenging times! Health is ending up to be a far more interesting goal than I believed it would be at first. There is always something to learn!
