I started to learn and practice Tai Chi. last month.  The texts in this post are memory aids for this moving meditation.  There are 108 moves.

I am fascinated by the combination of mind and body that is inherent within tai chi.
I discover them as if they are new, but they have been around for years and years.

The images in this post are of things I do not own yet remember deeply.

"I think a painting is more like the real world if it's made out of the real world"
Robert Rauschenberg  1925 - 2008

  3. It interests me that things I made or loved or experienced from time past seem to resonate further into body memory through the images made visible by these traditional texts. x
