City Mouse or Country Mouse?

Carolyn and I live in a small town in Indiana. It often feels like a plate of white beans: bland and unexciting. This weekend, however, finds us in the New York City area, and Indiana is beginning to have a certain attraction. 497 more words

太極 Taiji

感恩最近的工作不太忙,我其實也不是工作狂,也不覺得自己目前的狀況是為工作而活;忙碌之餘,我還是很感恩一切的機遇。

前天上了一堂太極課,兩個半小時的學習讓我身心都有收獲;自從藝術史的課程結束後我就連一個星期給自己的兩個小時都奉獻了,所以很難得可以有‘上課’和‘學習’的機會。一般沒在運動的我以為被操了幾個小時隔天會全身痠痛,Thanks God一切還好。

太極講求的是陰陽平衡,陰中有陽陽中帶陰;當左手上時右手就往下,當左腳踏了出去就把右腳收回來;當身體很沉時就讓雙手去提高,每個動作都配合呼與吸,與其憋氣應該順著flow去。太極並不激烈(很適合我)但卻屬於有氧運動,我想我可以長期practice來調整自己的體質,還真希望自己可以健康一點。

而老師在教拳時也不忘了提醒關於心的關照和本質的著重。

生活如此,相處如此,工作如此,創造亦如此。

我想前陣子真的忙到茫了,很簡單很踏實的道理去都沒有辦法體認。接下來,希望可以過正常人的生活卻活像超人的夢想。
