Balancing Act…


Bertha’s…nudging me towards balance today…and…although…today is the autumn equinox…the day when light and dark are balanced…she says that isn’t exactly what she means…

According to…Bertha…balance doesn’t mean equal…it means in the right proportions…to support each other…

Hmmm…things start coming to mind…salt and pepper…actually…all spices and herbs…

She says I’m on the right track with that…it takes pinch of one and a dash of another…to perfectly balance the taste of a dish…yet…each are equally important…

I know where she is heading…my life…isn’t she always…so I go there with her willingly…seeing that my life isn’t an activity pie of equal slices…and that it doesn’t need to be…a little bit of some things…like pepper…go a long way…and…some things…don’t really have much of a flavor of their own…but they enhance the flavor of the others…

I see work…play…rest…writing…chores…errands…in a new way…as seasonings…that blend together to bring balance to my life…knowing that some will take a bigger chunk of time than others…but…all are necessary…
