Age, Change, Color, Movement, Perseverance, Love.

Those are the topics for my six Tai Chi classes at the Hampton Holistic Center this Fall. I’ve done the first four, with “Perseverance” occurring tonight.

Perseverance is the mark of the student who has lasted through more than one class.

Perseverance is the mark of the teacher eager to teach new students.

Perseverance is evident with every newly finished work of art: a book, a painting, a play, a contractual agreement, a building.

While perseverance in Tai Chi can be the completion of a set of exercises, the real deal shows if you are still doing the same (and new) things 5, 10, or 20 years down the road.

Are you?  Will you?
