    Have a great time, brother!

    I will be there in spirit.

    Enjoy the weekend!

    How was the Tai Chi Gala?

    It was fun, Dale. You were sorely missed.

    I had some good chats with Dr. Painter and Yancy, so if your ears were burning, it was us talking about you. All good stuff, of course.

    I posted some pix on facebook. See Tai Chi Gala, 5/30/14-6/1/14, Albany NY

    Excellent!

    Sorry I missed it. Working for yourself is great and not so great at times.

    Thanks for the link. Great to see you and Shifu Painter with Squeezy cheese.

    lol on the squeezy cheese.

    That photo was totally Shifu Painter's idea.

    On a similar note, he crashed my Brush and Sword workshop and inspired me with some questions. Note what I'm writing on the wipeboard...

    It was nice to have him there actually

    Of course, my relationship with Dr. Painter is much different that yours Dale. He posed a good question about social media, but it was as time was running out, so I couldn't really engage it that well. It was really good to see him. Still bummed I didn't see you. I was looking forward to hanging out with you and Sharif, but he had something come up at the last minute and had to cancel. Next year maybe.

    Should be there.

    It will be good to see everyone.

    It has been a while for me.

    Technically speaking, this was my 1st Tai Chi Gala

    My last ZSFF was 2009. I never made it out to the Gala until this year because it was previously too close to our own Tiger Claw Elite Championships and KUNG FU TAI CHI DAY. But this year, we moved the date up, so I could go. It was really great to see Loretta and everyone again, although I must add that I got a last-minute invite to the Huading awards last weekend, so I'm a tad regretful that I couldn't make that (because I would've really luved a selfie with Lucy Liu ).

    Gathering of the Baguazhang Circle with Dr. John Painter: June 6-10, 2016
