Here at the frontier, the leaves fall like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians, and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are still two cups at my table.

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.

The Yang 24 short form was developed at the behest of the Chinese Communist party. They wanted to develop and promote a standardized version of the Yang form for their own purposes. 

Today, they are attempting to do the same thing with Chen style taijiquan. Below is a link to a podcast by Jonathan Bluestein discussing this development.
