This is for Forrest Curo and others, like myself, who have aches and soreness of muscles. Recently my wife and I were in China and we noticed that the older folks meet in small groups in the morning in small quiet parks, or a quiet part of a larger park, and do Tai Chi. It appears to be like a gentle and slow motion dance or simple ballet steps. It also appears to be a state of mind. But these oldsters were in better shape than us and limber. We tried it too and it seems to give a sense of peace. It is worth a try, and I do not pretend to know all that is behind it. But it seems to include a love of flowers, and birds, and quiet strolls. Probably the communion is with God, however conceived, and nature and a making of peace with the rest of the World that is a bit more jarring while you are at it. We saw this in 4 or 5 cities there. My guess is that some are Buddist, but many have no specific religious practice except maybe this is. Quakers there? I doubt that.
