That was how the Lumosity site finished today’s session. It reminded of my teacher’s frequent reference to Tai chi as “The long game.”
It applies to so many things. And it goes both ways: when I see the marked postural distortions that accompany people’s pain and suffering it’s clear that they had very definite habits that persisted for long periods of time to get into the condition they get into. (Of course the job of reversing all of that is another story:-)
I just finished “The Power of Habit.” I recommend it.
Fighting disease or promoting health, again…
I like to reframe these cause and effect conversations in the hope that it will promote thought on the subjects. The decisions are big. And I know you won’t see it on CNN or the Fox channels.
And it spans all the various subjects of this Blog, from bending and lifting as it relates to back pain, to green drinks and garlic soup.
(And lest you think that I think that I have all the answers, take a look at the title of the book in the picture. It’s a classic illustration (the book, not the title) of an inconvenient truth: the more you do know about something about something the more you come to realize that we really know very little about anything. In this book, the author, a smart science guy, points out that even when it comes to water there are some very basic questions for which we have no answers. Questions that you and I would assume, probably, have already been taken care of. We don’t even understand water! So it’s not about having all the answers; it’s about having better information so we can make more informed, more conscious, choices. And it’s about observing the results of ours and other’s choices so we can course-correct (if it isn’t too late).

I took my first hike with the Everett Mountaineers yesterday. Just short of Index, the town, and before you cross the river, there is a right-hand turn. Just to the right is the Parking Lot. It’s an 8 mile hike, round trip, with plenty of stair-climbing action if that sort of thing appeals to you. When we started up the trail there was two ladies just ahead of us and a total of three cars in the Parking Lot. By the time we got back to the Parking Lot – where there were no more parking spots – I had lost track of how people we had seen. Good to get an early start if this is your destination. I am glad that I went; once was enough.
P.S. – So this is Mount Index… from a couple of different angles, up close:-)
P.S.S. – Lastly, after the hike, we ate at the Mountain View Diner in Gold Bar. They have a rep for good pies, at least among the Mountaineers. I can attest to their pumpkin pie: it’s good!
though they are off on one or two details, it’s a very nice article.

A seminar we missed. Looks like fun. If you follow the link you will see some great tai chi work getting done, but not quite enough padding on that floor for my liking:-)
