Birthdays, anniversaries, push hands camp; annual celebrations all deserving of special attention.
In July I have another annual ritual. Each July, four great friends, travel on different roads, from different directions, to meet up for a weekend of joy and laughter.
My tai chi sisters, Anna, Lois, MaryLynn and I have been playing tai chi together together for over 16 years. We do other stuff together too â€” we give each other foot rubs, do crafty stuff; we catch up on our latest news and we laugh a lot.
Weâ€™ve known each other a long time and are grateful to be growing old together. The four of us have made a point and commitment of connecting at least once a year. Good friends are worth the long drive!
We rent a cabin on Watch Lake in the Caribou region of BC. Itâ€™s beautiful â€” there is no internet or phone â€” the way we connect is still arm to arm.
And since there will be no internet – I wonâ€™t be posting for the next four days. Enjoy the break. See you again next Tuesday!
