And though we find that we must keep up and maintain the haste of each day, our time is akin to a footprint on the ocean’s shore…so take the advice of Mother Earth and enjoy the caress of the water, and make as deep but kindly impression as you can within the sands of our time…
Some say that you can tell from a distance if it’s an old person by the way they walk. To those who prescribe to such myths I say rubbish. After all, age is just a number. Put to bed these notions with a daily dose of exercise. For me, I have found that to maintain poise, balance, and gait, ballet fits the bill…even for these old bones! Then again… who you calling old…#SeniorsRock #BalletNana
Balance is a useful word, giving symmetry and order to things. One can have a balanced diet, a balanced checkbook, and a balanced design. We can balance a scale by placing two equal objects on the level; we can balance our lives with an even amount of doing and not doing, dividing our time between work and play, family, and personal time.
A balanced photograph offers a visual that commands attention equally within its frame as well as the art of balance where we think of walking on a tightrope, balancing an object without spilling, or keeping oneself steady from falling.
So, today’s post is for all who are trying to keep their balance, may it be physically or mentally. For those of us over 65, balance may not come easy but remember, become a symphony, and write your own music with time, cadence, and perhaps a bit of balance.
You are not getting older, you are getting better!
