Almost sunup

We meet just after dawn in the park every Wednesday. I get there a bit early to set up an iPod and a little speaker so we have music during our Tai Chi practice. It’s a treat for me, this weekly wakeup time watching the sunrise and stretching out the kinks on the grass. I sometimes wonder if the people who live near the park hear our Chinese music, look out their windows, and think we’re crazy.

  1. Another mile and my morning run is complete. I often joke that my “pre-dawn” ritual, is about being on the downhill side of 40 and eating like I am still 24. True be told, I get a lot of mileage out of knowing I have already done more today than the rest of these office zombies will do all day

  2. A coworker and I were doing an audit of a client in New York City–we stopped for a quick lunch and afterwards sat in a small city park. There were a few park benches and it was quite nice.

    A young woman in her mid-twenties came out of the little cafe where we had just been–she was a bit homely. She was dressed well and probably worked in a nearby office.

    She stopped and started doing Tai Chi. Within a few minutes she became beautiful!
