1440 {77} :: In Balance

+

we sat huddled together on the chairlift, shoulders shrugged and chins tucked to shield against the frosty air
and we chatted about the boarders below

+

most with their feet tethered onto their boards so they ride perpendicular to the mountain
they are positioned to react
low and athletically
adjusting their weight
forward or back, right or left
prepared to respond to what comes their way

 in balance

others are unidirectional
their feet are tethered forward, facing the downhill
they can shift hips side to side
but they can’t respond like a skier or a boarder
positioned to ride either way

they are more likely to be unable to respond to the mountain
and more likely to fall

+

and so it seems in life

that we must position ourselves in such a way that we can respond
to what comes our way
we must be flexible and not unidirectional
accepting 

in balance

+

stay warm, friends

and in balance
