Happy New Year!
This is the time of year when traditionally we examine our lives and make resolutions to pursue personal goals. This week I joined the Taoist Tai Chi Society (which has a new International Centre in Dunedin http://www.taoist.org/about-us/new-international-centre-usa/) and became a student of this ancient art by joining a class of beginners. Taoist Tai Chi is a fluid, serene way to move your body and doesn?t fit my usual idea of vigorous exercise, so this is a radical change for a person who has always been in a hurry. As I pursued professional goals in my career as educator, there was little time for rest and reflection as I moved from classroom teacher to school librarian and then to college professor.
