001 ☯ The superior man is satisfied and composed; the mean man is always full of distress.

Location: Plaza
Time: All day
Style: Go for it
Status: Open

Today, dear Vatheon, you are in for a treat.

Oogway had arrived some time ago, damp, on unfamiliar ground, and entirely unconcerned. In fact, the only thing the aged tortoise had any want for was a staff to replace the one he had passed onto Shifu, but even that was no more than a fleeting thought. He would find another perhaps; or perhaps he would not. Time would tell.

Or perhaps it would not. There really was no point in have expectations like that.

Instead he had observed the Coral for a long while, feeling its power, touching an ancient paw to its stone-like structure as if greeting an old friend. Then he had stepped back and fallen into the first stance of his favourite meditation exercises. The old, familiar motions were as familiar as breathing to him, and that is where you will find him: standing in the middle of the Plaza, moving with the type of slow fluidity and grace that comes from experience and practise, the sensation of peace near tangible in the air.

Care to interrupt him?
