June 30, 2024 – June Issue of the Poetical Journal: Over the last 16 years in early June, almost yearly except for the pandemic ones, I have attended Dr. Paul Lam's annual U.S. tai chi conferences. These are always exciting times to visit friends made over the years, to improve my tai chi skills, and to learn a new form or improve on a previous one. This year I studied the Yang 37 Sword Form. I believe for the 4th time, the conference was held in Forest Grove, Oregon. At the end of the conference Jan and I headed to Cannon Beach and the coastline. There are three poems. The first, The Tai Chi Sword Form, is based on a tai chi form I recently learned. It also speaks to larger issues as well. The second and one of my favorites, Another Day, touches on life in general. The third, Fear, discusses a plague that is sweeping the country.

May 24, 2024 – May Issue of the Poetical Journal: Originally, we had hoped to report on our visit to Kauai. However, due to a bronchial infection, we decided to spend a second week on Maui. (All this turned out to be a blessing, as major flooding hit Kauai the day after we were to be on that island.) Hence, the pictorial focus will again be on Maui. There are three poems. The first, A Bit of Respite, extols the quality of our housing experience while on Maui. The owner had a bowl of hand-painted rocks from which guests could choose one. Our choice is pictured below. The second, Thank you, Sir, honors a scientist that many of you have not heard his name since high school physics. The third, Quickly Approaching, is my annual birthday poem. Of course, there is the traditional regular content.
