Balance


Yin and yang, black and white, right and left, he and she. Balance is such an integral part of our lives. Why is it so hard to achieve sometimes, and yet others, it just falls into place? Sometimes we have to work at balance, and sometimes, balance is just there naturally.

My checkbook. That’s balance I have to work at. I am 32 years old, and when my checkbook balances correctly, it thrills me. I am not an idiot. I can add and subtract. I always remember to write down my checks and charges. However, there is some mysterious gnome in my checking account that likes to toy with the numbers and throw in a couple of charges or fees or just gnome money now and then. Seems like every so often, I will have an unaccounted for minus 13 cents, or an extra $2.48. It is always some really random number, and drives me nuts. In an effort to keep this facet of my life under control, I monitor my account online, at least once a week. Today, it balanced exactly. Hooray for me. But that is due to a good amount of work on my part.

Then, there’s the kind of balance that just ‘is’. An easy conversation. Sleeping on the same side and spooning. Quick laughter. Ridiculous amounts of passion. One in charge, the other not. Spanker / spankee. You can’t force that kind of balance. It is rare and unexplainable. The strange thing is that unlike the visual of a leaf delicately balanced on bamboo, REAL balance isn’t that delicate. Real, natural balance is stronger than anything you can imagine. It is steady, and trustworthy and long lived. That’s what is really beautiful.

You're welcome, and thank you. I think I followed your "view my blog" tag from someone else's blog. Can you tell I wasn't doing much at work today?

You are so right!

In earlier years many friends/colleagues/acquaintances etc kept drawing my attention to my insane "over-the-top"ness , they told me that i should seek a better balance.

So I did.

I placed an ad in the New York Times for the most boring dull normal uninteresting individual in the city. Not suprisingly I only had one response. That was was 8 years ago and we have been penpals ever since.

Now that's balance ! The worse his life gets the better mine gets. And the Universe stays in balance for everyone!

No need to thank me

So true Sunney, balance is such an integral part of our existence. You know I'm all about the Yin and Yang of life, the good vs. bad, the duality of mankind, the cummer and the cummee, right nipple and left nipple and like you said the spanker and the spankee. There must be balance in our lives or we will spin lopsided out of control.

Hugh, that's some funny shit, how inventive.
