It's been about 25 years ago that I taught Jeff as a first grader at Hahaione Elementary.
I also loved the company of his younger sister Kathy when their dad, Kevin, dropped them off at school.
Today, we are still in contact with the Suh family and appreciate their long time friendship and generosity.
Just like how we were evaluated by performing our Yang 24 tai chi, here is an assessment of what's around us...
Like tai chi, our bougainvillea bush is colorful with natural symmetry and balance, just like the principles of tai chi... centering and flowing
It is also up front where it can be appreciated just like our priority to play tai chi.
After hitting a peak production of watercress, ken's aquaponic project tapered off. But, now, it is stronger.
Like tai chi, without diligent thinking and attention to detail, we can lose our momentum to reach our standard.
Our kale plants are hardy and plentiful but we often times take it for granted and not make the best use of this super food!
Like tai chi, we gravitate to our favorite movements and sometimes forget to realize that it's important to emphasize ALL of tai chi, as all facets are essential.
Among the Manoa lettuce patch are volunteer Malabar spinach vines soaking up the nutrients.
Tai chi, too, can grow on us and invigorate our life.
The little things, like herbs, bring out the richness of a dish, so do the little refinements of tai chi help enrich our practice.
Variety adds much to life: teaching, socializing, exercising, pursuing hobbies & projects, learning something new, enjoying and being positive and aware of who and what's around us.
Keeping in tune to nature and our community help us to keep on track.
