"Practicing t'ai chi puts me in the same frame of mind as when I'm making a painting. I get to go somewhere far away from myself and the world, while simultaneously, I am more myself and more part of the world than I am at any other time. I am exactly where I'm meant to be, doing the thing I was made to do. The sensation of the experience is more than similar, and they feed each other."
