The Duality of Life and Death. ...
Duality teaches us that every aspect of life is created from a balanced interaction of opposite and competing forces. Yet these forces are not just opposites; they are complementary. They do not cancel out each other, they merely balance each other like the dual wings of a bird.
I struggle to maintain a balanced lifestyle like I am sure most of us do. Everyone walks their own path in life and in doing so I recommend if you haven't already found it to seek out your own ways to maintain a balanced lifestyle.
The closer I get to my own personal balance the more satisfied and happier I feel. It is a constant balancing act.
Family, Blogging, getting out in nature, droning, photo editing, creating, are ways I help balance my stressful day job as a social worker.
Please share in the comments some of your own ways you help maintain your balance.

Fall Inspired Tribute Celebrating my 555 post on Instagram 🌻😊🌻
Ford Motor Company does an excellent job investing in the city that has been its home since it originated. Located in a Dearborn, Michigan near the Ford Motor Company World Headquarters is a lovely field of hundreds of mature sunflowers. I wanted to snap a few pictures earlier last month, but couldn't find the time to do so. Even though most have started to return to the earth, I loved the mature sunflowers colors and fall vibes even more.
Happy Trails Everyone 🐼🌻
Wanted to try and create a something darker this month since Halloween will be here before we know it. I have to admit old cemeteries are quite fascinating to me. Walking the grounds springs forth a multitude of a variety feelings. Of course sadness is the most common, but also happiness.
Here is a stream of consciousness from my experience:
Dark, peace, rest, lovers, friends, warriors, sleeping, loss, grieving, empty, lingering, lost, pain, anger, sadness, good memories, moments in time, flickering, dust, earth, wind, memorial, rise, fall, leaves, rebirth.
Enjoy everyone 🐼
