The autumn leaves are falling like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are always two cups at my table.

T’ang Dynasty poem

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

Cheng Man Ching


Cheng Man Ching, the Master of Five Excellences (Taiji, painting, poetry, traditional Chinese medicine, and chess) was one of the most important figures in bringing the art of Taijiquan to the United States. If you click on the title of this post, you'll be directed to a blog I've found that is dedicated specifically to CMC.

The owner of this blog, Mark Hennessey, has translated several of Prof. Cheng's non-taiji writings into English. A link is also found over to the right. Please pay him a visit.
