stork spreads wings

Soft crunch of snow underfoot. Crystal prisms refract light into diamond sprays. I have walked out this morning to the frozen allotment gardens near home to do a tai chi set. The slowly undulating and meditative movement gently awakens my body. The crisp air invigorates; the movement calms.

Normally I practice inside – a sensible thing in Canada in January. And so, normally, my practice is defined by the parameters of walls and furniture. Stork spreads wings, brush knee, play lute – (back up to avoid coffee table) – and so on. The frozen gardens present a new practice container. My gaze can now extend to the bordering backyards and the sleeping vegetable gardens. The terrain underfoot is uneven.

I feel alive and full of the potential that this space and this new year hold.

May your practice be illuminated with joy!

Blessings of light and love in 2015…
