Sounds like some great ways to keep oneself active. I was thinking about taking about Judo at one time, but decided that Taiji was probably all that I would be able to practice in this lifetime.

Thanks for sharing.

@richrf,
Hi back at ya, Rich,

Yes observing life growing, life struggling, and life die certainly gives us perspective, perhaps an overview. Nature reminds man that he isn’t so very different, not isolated.

I lived in the city for many, many years. But I must confess that my heart always longed to be more surrounded in nature.

Thoreau said, “We have more in common with the trees than we do each other.”

I don’t know about that but, the trees are certainly good company and very relaxing. They speak directly to my heart. It is a love affair.

Orchid growing, how nice for you. Anyone who doesn’t believe in miracles probably hasn’t spent time with an orchid. :-}

Thank you as well. You are a very sharing person

Hi GoshisDead,

I love to swim too. I grew up in a beach town in Massachusetts and just loved the salt water and waves. Living somewhat landlocked here in TN, I certainly miss the water and esp. the waves.

I tried wood carving once, thought it would be great to create statues of Buddha and large animals like elephants for my garden. I think where I went wrong was my tool were not sharp enough, because I tried to cut the wood and the wood won. I should get back to that.

I also am an avid reader. My little library in town may run out of books for me one fine day. But I always have Google.

You are an excellent writer with a keen mind. Do you one day hope to publish?

I mostly write academic/linguistic/antropological stuff under contract for various North American Tribal Entities. A lot of the stuff is contractually obligated not to be disseminated as it pertains to either internally sacred or internally political subject matter. So no, publication hasn't ever really been a goal of mine. I write pretty much to be able to research which is the fun part. I've recently got the bug to try fiction, although I probably will not have a knack for it. The last couple years economy/poor grant funding etc... has given me the time to do so. I figure what the heck, I can join the millions of talentless hacks out there.

Some people belong with the trees. Sometimes I do Qigong among the trees. It is very healthy. Thanks there Subjectivity9.
