It’s 2024, if you’ve ever commented, read or shared a post of mine, then an even bigger thank you for contributing to the story of The Tai Chi Notebook. I feel privileged that I get such good comments here, and quite often they inspire new blog posts, so we all play a part here. Let’s see where it goes in 2024.
I’ve already done one post of a training idea for the New Year, however, for New Year’s resolutions I thought I might introduce you to the more professional side of my writing – here’s an article I’ve written for the iMore website on iPhone apps that will help you stick to your New Year’s resolutions. Since most of us have smart phones these days I think it’s widely applicable to my readers here (I’m sure Android versions of most of the apps also exist). I hope you enjoy it! I’m certainly going to be using some of those apps this year.
2024 will be the Year of the Wood Dragon, (which starts on 10th February). Japan Times says “In a dragon year, people are said to be able to harness the creature’s intelligence, leadership and abilities to pursue their dreams with creativity, passion, courage and confidence.”
So, here’s a bit of Xing Yi Dragon I recorded in 5 spare minutes I had between opening presents and eating another round of Christmas dinner/left overs/chocolates – it’s out of focus, but not out of mind 🙂
In a way Dragon is the most Xing Yi animal of them all. I’ve done lots of posts about Dragons before, so check some of them out here:

- Dragon Dance and street theatre
