A Chinese Bamboo Story

A Chinese Bamboo Story ... 
with a T'ai Chi Chih connection ...


In China 
there is a type of bamboo
that doesn't appear to grow at all
for the first four years.
It just develops
a massive root structure 
while the shoot barely shows. 
In the fifth year
it grows eighty feet.


Many things in life
are like that Chinese bamboo. 
You may not see a
any initial evidence 
that what you are about
is making a difference,
but, if you persist, 
eventually,
a tremendous harvest
will result.
