Observed on the street: It’s all about balance

“It’s all about balance.” I saw this scene at English Bay in Vancouver, British Columbia:

What’s true in making balanced-rock sculptures is also true in life.

Balance is an art. Achieving balance requires patience and perseverance and a willingness to try and try again, even when things come tumbling down. Balance is a gift to enjoy while you have it. Balance is a mysterious and elusive force — one that often seems to defy the laws of the world around you. Balance (when you find it, or it finds you) makes everything around you beautiful.

Calendar girl

I love this verse from the song Calendar Girl by the Canadian band Stars:

I can’t live forever
I can’t always be
One day I’ll be sand on a beach by the sea
The pages keep turning
I’ll mark off each day with a cross
And I’ll laugh about all that we’ve lost.

Observed on the street (beach): Happiness drifting by…

This message was carved into a driftwood log on a beach I visited recently:

"Happy" carved into a driftwood log.

 

“Happy.”  And I was. ♥
