A warm breeze blew in the scent of fresh cut grass while the cacophony of birds, automobiles and children beckoned me to join them. A morning shower, the smell of soap and the stroke of a razor; sides, cheeks, down the neck and around the beard. Over the head, sweeping away any trace of hair upon my head, an application of Bay Rum, soothing, blending, into a subtle smell only noticible to those that are close.
Loose fitting clothes and steeping barefoot upon the porch, coffee in hand, I ease into the day. A pipe, my Deacon's pipe, extending some eight inches long, filled with a custom blend black cordial, only seemed appropriate. Slightly stimulated by the use of caffeine and nicotine, I reflect on their misuse and their unfair labeling.
I retire to my back yard and stretch; gently, gently. I breath a cleansing breath and relax into a horse stance. Feet shoulder width apart, knees slightly bent, I raise my hands, palms inward, pushing outward with palms outward, they return to rest upon the site of the Dan T'ien and rest. In stillness I circulate the Chi round and round until it rests in a pulsating orb; energizing, a smile spreads across my face.
It is a good day.

Tran - glad you could stop by. I'm always the better for it.

Rubik - You fun-ass puzzle you! Yeah, a little too much rain. Eck!

Rowan - the blend smells a little like chocolate...Like all things, moderation is the key. Been a while since we talked. We'll have to make some time. Okay?

eeky - does the monkey smoke too?
