So anyway this is the first of hopefully many entries.
I've been thinking a lot recently about the notion of balance. We can see it in so many parts of our lives. Possibly, more importantly, you can certainly feel its absence.
I enjoy noticing it in the small things in life. Within the dish I chose for lunch, it was balanced with regards to flavour, texture and visual appearance (oops the artist in me never strays far). When I was rearranging my shelves the other day (and oh what shelves they are) I did quite deliberately pay attention to trying to visually balance the paraphernalia. I also placed the photo of my papa in front of the some of the dictionaries I inherited from him. In the next section I sited the photograph of my nana.
Of course, this simple idea can be drawn further to address the greater aspect of life as a whole.Balance of the active and more contemplative sides of life. Between the things we want to do and the things we need to do.
I'd like to leave you with a little thought....picture if you will a club sandwich - one of my favourite things to order out as I can't be bothered making this for myself at home as it has so many parts. A good example of balance - fresh tomato, crispy bacon, creamy mayo and so on. Of course, if it isn't balanced you can always use a toothpick......
