Some of the folks I know from Twitter have declared this coming week to be “comment on blogs” week. In an effort to get folks to break out of their Twitter twibulation mode of “retweet but don’t comment”, people this week should make an effort to tweet only after commenting, and then retweet the specific link with the hash tag #icommented
Good luck with that. I just realized that after Wednesday I’ll be off in the woods, and I’ll be missing out on all this lovely commenting, assuming it happens. So if you were going to comment here, better do it before Wednesday. Otherwise, your comment will sit in the queue for a while, waiting for my return.

body changes, hangover cure, taiji
Last night I went to a birthday party. Had a great time. It was nice, and of course there was birthday creme brûlée, and I had a soda. (I never have soda). This morning I woke with a terrible headache, and a sense that I was hungover.
Tai chi — eight pieces of silk, five golden coins and the form — largely cleared the cobwebs and the fog. Working the body’s joints and muscles largely cleared the crunkiness from my limbs and my mind. I feel clearer and more attuned to myself. And I appreciate that a solution to the body’s difficulties is so close at hand. Working through the forms in the sunshine definitely helped.
