26 MayFlow

At some point I’ll update about the last five months here.  They have been momentous.  In the meantime, I offer this thought…

I have a friend who told me once when I was telling her about how hard it was to find life ‘balance’ that we shouldn’t be striving for balance anyway because it’s static and easily upset leading us to have to fight hard to retain/regain it. We should be like water and flow & sometimes it will be white water, sometimes it will be deep water, sometimes it will be crashing beach front water, but — go with the water, and rest when you come to a gentle wide river or a still day on the lake, or a happily bubbling stream or a quiet eddy off to the side of the white water. But go with the water.

This changed my perspective. There is no balance because you must put your priorities *somewhere*, but those priorities can shift and dance around each other like water moving around the rocks. The water doesn’t stop because a rock is in the way, it just moves around it and keeps going…

Today I am water reaching a barrier of some sort, I’m rising, and rising, and rising, and sooner or later either the barrier will remove and I’ll spill through, or I’ll rise enough that I go over the top and find my way on my own.
