Creating for Balance

This is a photo of water that Sammie took that I LOVE!


I'm about to hit the road running today and will be out of pocket until tomorrow night.  Before I go I wanted to do a quick post (since I'm on a roll).   I thought I'd share a poem I did several years ago when my kids were a bit younger and I was feeling overwhelmed.  Lately I have to say I've been doing a much better job of being balanced in my creative spirit.  I think in truth leading with creativity (including this blog) and a couple of awesome groups I belong to have helped.  I hope you enjoy this beautiful weekend and I'll "chat" with you soon! - Christine



Drowning in the Ordinary

October 6, 2009 at 7:06pm

It is from the drowning in the ordinary
that I wish to break free.
Not completely, mind you
but in a way that balances it in my life.
Instead of being a swimmer
with her body submerged
and just the hint of
life giving breath receivers above the water
I long to be a wind surfer...
Dipping my toes in the water of normalcy
while balanced with the majority of my delighted being
above the current
laughing, playing in the wind
and feeling the sun upon my face.

  1. WOW! Does this poem ever resonate with me...Thanks for the reminder to stay balanced. It is so easy for some of us to get overwhelmed and bogged down and forget 'normalcy'.
