I had woken up one morning with the beginning of Not Human in my head. But it was while I was practicing Tai Chi later that the book really came to life for me.
While I was on vacation, I practiced on the shore of Lake Huron. This particular morning, I was up before the sun. I do this sequence of movements 3 to 4 times in a row usually in the morning and always after a good workout. This video consists of 42 movements at sunrise. Although, I'm not prefect in this video, it was too amazing not to share. I wish my camera could have picked up the red hue of the sun that morning because then you'd see the true color of Zatak's eyes (or at least how I see them). Tai Chi is a huge influence in my life and my writing. It is the balance in my hectic, sprinter-mentality life, and has helped me through some of the most stressful moments of recent events in my life. I hope you enjoy this.
