This is my second year practicing Tai Chi without being enrolled in a class. Some days I feel like I am just going through the motions when I do the form. Interestingly, I found some inspiration in a book that I just started reading, Rim by Alexander Besher.

That is exactly how I would like to feel on a regular basis.
