"Qigong is an ancient Chinese health care system that integrates physical postures, breathing techniques and focused intention."

I’m tired, still or again, not sure which. I don’t think that’s a good thing to say in a blog but there it is . A blog is not a diary or a journal. and yet it is a chronicle, a very personal one. I see my blog as a personal reflection on surrounding events that affect me and that I share with two or three others. Anyway, I was going to share that I’m tired and I did and I am but the day isn’t over yet so I have to deal with that. I promised. Full disclosure: I am tired.

I was going to start some tai chi exercises again. I used to do tai chi when I lived in Muskoka (from 1987 to 2003)), but a friend suggested I try Qigong instead. I’ve had two sessions so far, just learning. It involves thinking, imaging and imagining as well as a full range of accompanying motions. It’s supposed to help you recover your youthful vitality and maintain your health into old age. i’m already old and I’m quite healthy so so what can I say? No thanks to qigong because i didn’t know about it. It’s also credited with reducing the incidence of falling. I can use that. And best of all, or most important of all, is that it “reestablishes the body/mind/soul connection.” I’m not sure I knew I was disconnected. I just sort of drag everything along with me as I go. Don’t we all? Well, no. I think people who are too attached to their cell phones have lost their connection.

I kept on looking up qigong and I got blogged down. I’m not ready to absorb it all at once. I’ll just let it creep up on me, or vice versa.

And that’s all I have to say about that.
