Issue #024: balance
On a balmy morning in August 1974, a young man walked on a steel cable between the Twin Towers in New York. “There is no why,” Petit replied when asked about the motivation for his balancing act. But I suspect there was: to create order within disorder; harmony amongst discord. Life is, whether we like it or not, out of balance most of the time. We seek ways to rebalance and, once there, we try to maintain an equilibrium. Sleep more, work less. Laugh more, stress less. Listen more, talk less. Give more, take less. Risk more, fear less.
