Back on the list, the river meets the ocean ...

... or the hills lead up to the mountains.

A while ago I linked to Peter Bojanic's blog, but of late it seemed dormant. But it now seems he's revived it. Excellent. Here's an interesting post about the illusions of early progress in Taiji (or anything, really) that chimes so well with this extract from the Zhuang Zi. The latter is from another blog, Cook Ding's Kitchen, that hereby goes from my list of possibles to the definites.

I keep bloglines folders for "maybe subscribe to properly" and "maybe get rid of as it's dead or rubbish". PB was there but he's back in the RM main list again.

Consider videotaping

My video project never got anywhere. When it's nice outside again (brrr!) I may revive it. I was reminded of it by Master Paul's 6th point.

Chinese Pod

This is brilliant!

Daily Chinese lessons (99% Mandarin) on my ipod --

I try to keep it handy, play one or two now and again even when working on other text in English.

It's slightly below me content-wise (it might catch up with my level of intermediate incompetance in a few months) but it's really really helpful for tones, idiomatic expressions and life/culture insights.

xie xie ni men, Ken he Jenny!
