Hello all, I just want to introduce myself to the group. My name is Mark and I will be taking my very first class in Yang Tai Chi this coming tuesday in Manchester NH. I have been thinking about doing this for sometime now and things just came together somehow. I am a 52 year old software engineer and I really need to get some exercise in my life. I feel like my body is slowly wasting away and have very little energy or desire to do a workout. I am hoping that Tai Chi will restore my vitality and my spirit, which seems to be slowly dwindling away. I am married and have three children (girls) that are grown and have thier own families; also have six grand children and two dogs. My life is lacking something and I am hoping that Tai Chi can help me find it. I am interested in martial arts, nature, God (the creator), the universe, science, math, reading, and philosophy. Lately it seems that I find myself yearning for more of the philsophy of life than technology; which has been my life up to now and still is. I guess I need to add some dimension to my life. Well, I don't know what else to say for now. But wish me luck in my first class, I will let you know how it goes.
Do or do not, there is no try.
