June 10, 1935. One drunk reached out to another and together they stayed sober. Bill W. and Dr. Bob started a world wide phenomenon called Alcoholics Anonymous.

June 10, 1986, I went to my first tai chi class. Another phenomenon entered my life.

Funny, I had to look up the spelling of the word phenomenon. And well, there’s that…how do you look it up if you can’t spell it thing. So I went to the thesaurus and looked up the word magic. There it was, phenomenon. As well as; sensation, wonder, prodigy, miracle, rarity, humdinger, stunner, doozy, rip-snorter.

I don’t agree with a lot of the practices in the AA program. I don’t have to. I’ve learned what I think is not as important as what I do.

Actions count in a program of recovery.

AA laid out the plan of action for me. Tai Chi taught me how to follow through with it.

Both are rip-snorting humdingers for me.
