Frosted bushes

Pic of the day: Actually took this picture a week ago, last time it snowed.

Sliding toward balance

Sorry that I need to be so cryptic, but that's how these things go. Anyway, things are normalizing a bit today. For as long as it lasts. Wednesday will be wild again. I wonder how long this will last. But new things only have a passing intensity. This too will fade. Isn't it wonderful that your head knows something with so much certainty that even the heart is convinced? At least to some degree. I can make my soul become more still inside me by applying myself to that, when I so choose.

Of course, I don't always choose that. Change can sometimes be invigorating, and while I don't see vigor as the highest good, I still think it's a bit early to just lie down and wait for the end. Actually, if it were up to me, it would be a lot too early. Anyway, I've used some of that energy today, and will be using more the next couple days. From now and until Wednesday I'm mostly reading up and stuff. Not like the real thing, but should be better prepared.

The waves will certainly slow down and become still again. It won't happen this week, for sure, but sooner or later quiet will descend again. And I'll do something else. Or perhaps this will become an integrated part of my life. One way or another, balance will be restored. The ripples will fade and the pond will again be still. This is the way it always goes, and I am content with that. I don't really want my entire life to be a "roller coaster ride". Your mileage may vary, and most people's seem to do.

Still having the mother of head colds. If I had more fever, I would have thought it a flu. Apart from that, not much to report.
