Appendix – Learning Chinese in my Car

Recounted here are the first two years of my pursuit of something I once thought was a figment of other people’s imaginations–qi, sometimes called chi or the energy of life.

My journey began when I felt something between my hands that was unlike anything I’d ever felt before.

In that moment a door opened into a world where feeling is believing and thinking–the chatter, chatter, chatter of the little voice in one’s head–is not the better part of being.
