Tai Chi

That hand motion -- closing and slightly twisting at the same time.

It's in the stance, the motion, the movement, the stillness, the grace.

Polaris, the North Star used by the ancient mariners to bring them safely to harbour.

It is the brightest and closest star in a constellation pointing to where the North Pole should be; a guide, a lodestar, changing over time.

Washed by the tidal bore, swift and dangerous, and when that storm passes through, it takes all comers by surprise.
Imagine that!
