Breath Returns to Origin

While the tai chi master was in China visiting her family, our classes continued, but without the usual spirit. We missed her balanced nature of tiger and deer, her white crane tensing for flight. The way she led us in circulating our energy, until the breath was gathered and restored to a point deep in the center of the body. She came back at last, and slipped a pair of fans, red silk and bamboo, into my bag.
