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.

As a child, my brother and I were fascinated by this graveyard. It was built in the 1800s and is a Catholic Jesuit Cemetery. A few of the graves carry the remains of Civil War soldiers. The crypt is located on a hill and houses a famous Jesuit priest buried beneath the floor.
I was fascinated when I flew over the crypt and saw the unusual letters "AMDG".
One of my smart historical colleagues let me know that the markings represented a famous Latin Jesuit Saying:
Ad Majored Dei Gloria: "For the Greater Glory of God"
May everyone rest in piece 🐼
I love nature, but I thought I would change things up a bit and showcase some urban street photos I have taken. My daytime job gives me the opportunity to travel frequently downtown. I have seen a lot of positive changes in Detroit over the last 10 years. I truly believe it is making a slow comeback. The city is filled with many architectural treasures I have only started to learn about. Let me know if you would like more urban shots in the comments.

I know most people love colors and so do I, but I have been loving exploring various black and white shots lately.
It is bringing out the minimalist in me.
Have a great week everyone!!!
