BE16: Harmony?

When I see the word balance I think of a few different things.
High-wire artists, Bind Justice, brand names, and checkbooks.
I think of where I have been, where I am now and attempt to
accept that at least some aspects of life have indeed leveled.

The fulcrum swaying in a delicate balance over the pile of sand at
the museum to show that the earth, though at a slight tilt, yes off
balance and slightly wobbling, is rotating. Days, even when the sun
remains hidden are balanced by how the hours that pass are used.

may this new day bring
natural balance into
a clearer focus

Balance

Everything in moderation, nothing in excess;
this is the way to lead a life of quality and meaning.
