Choosing the Slow, Soft Path

Pix- production unit 251

I woke up feeling edgy.  Pen in hand, I wonder, what’s under this uncomfortable irritability?  Before the answer surfaces on the page, I hear a familiar voice.  “Rule #1.  Go Slow.  Rule # 2.  Be soft.  Rule # 3. Remember 1 & 2.”  Words Tai Chi Master Frank Fong repeated over and over in class.

A smile of relief curls on my lips.  I had forgotten the beauty of going slow and being soft.  As I so easily can.  My entire body relaxes and I notice, for the first time this year, what appear to be wisteria blooms outside my window.
