Yesterday, I spent the afternoon at the 2nd Annual Catawba Pow-Wow. I’ve never been to a pow wow before. For those of you who don’t know what it is: Open to the Public. Bring the whole family out to watch, listen, and experience Native Americans from all across North America and Canada Dance, Drum, and Share their Culture during the Come See Me Festival at The Winthrop Coliseum for The 2nd Annual Catawba Pow-Wow. Vendors will be on site selling…

I just received this e-mail yesterday and thought that I’d do my little part to help increase participation. If good fortune holds out, I’ll be in Australia at the start of this, so hopefully my entry this year will be pictures of Sydney, or something like that! Anyway, have a link at the site and see if there you’d like to participate. No drama. Just 35 photos, 30 days, book form. That’s it! Always been planning to do a book…

I was walking down College Street at lunch time and I saw this advertisement. I thought: Hmmmm. That would look interesting with some worker or homeless person walking past it. I continued on to lunch. When I finished lunch, I walked back this way intending to stay across the street for a few minutes to see if anyone interesting walked by; however, lo and behold, there were a line of workers sitting here. Nice. I took my iPhone out and…

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. ~Confucius I think that I wanted to write something profound here, but the profundity just want come. So, I’ll just share my thoughts about my Tai Chi practice over the past year. Of course, when I walked into The Peaceful Dragon on Tuesday, April 6th, 2010, I had never taken a Tai Chi class in my life. I had no idea what to expect, therefore, no expectations. My first…
