Tai Chi is great. But you have to do it to see if it fits you. I actually practiced more than 2 hours a day while living and studying in China and before I started working full time.

It will be great to have the time to practice again. 2 hours is not that much. One form is about 30 minutes. So if you know 2 forms + warm up + meditation + stretching and you easily get there.

Fun thread. Not a complete list and always subject to change.
  • rehab one more house including my first dock build with requisite boat lift, fish cleaning station, diving board, and sunset viewing bench (retirement place)
  • one more widget to develop, market and sell (fun low-tech instead of high tech)
  • at least one full round trip from Norfolk to Key West via the intercoastal waterway going as slow as possible
  • Get two kids through college
  • Become a decent amature videographer
  • at least 2 months exploring Australia and New Zealand (not much other travel desires)
  • volunteer in mussel bed repopulation efforts on the Pamlico and Albemarle sounds
  • dote over future "potential" grandkids and leave DD's with the hard stuff
  • celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary
