And I remember tai chi being very boring, and for old people.
Well, now I've started attending a tai chi class twice a week. So either I've become old and boring - or I must ironically now eat my judgemental words of yesteryear.
Yes, it's slow. Yes, more time is spent in warm-ups than actually doing any of the cool looking forms. But you know - it's incredibly relaxing. Peaceful. And I really like it. Even if I'm not burning calories, anything to keep one's blood circulating and energy flowing is a good thing, right? Now if only I could do it gracefully.
Anyway, next time I visit my gung gung I will have to tell him about my new afternoon hobby.
