“I invented nothing new. I simply assembled the discoveries of other men behind whom were centuries of work. Had I worked fifty or ten or even five years before, I would have failed. So it is with every new thing. Progress happens when all the factors that make for it are ready and then it is inevitable. To teach that a comparatively few men are responsible for the greatest forward steps of mankind is the worst sort of nonsense.”

— Henry Ford

Happy new year!

It was all snake, all the time during our practice yesterday morning, in celebration of the new year.  We snakefied our dragon walking, drilled into Xing Yi snake, wrapped ourselves around the Bagua snake, and even talked about the snake concept in Ha Say Fu.  Learned a tonne.  Scallies all around!
