A nice cup of coffee

*

What is it about a rich cup of coffee
That breaks up each passing day
Sipping the brew
Enjoying a view
Listening to what others have to say.
 
The aroma awakens our senses
Our pallets alive to the taste
We partake of the drink
We pause as we think
Then move on with our day in some haste.
 
Is coffee a part of reflection
A habit to fill in our day
An addiction of course
But a passage of sorts
A cup of coffee is the adult sort of way.
 
I’m sitting here drinking my coffee
beginnings of the new day
taste and aroma aside
this cup of coffee must abide
… until the next one happens my way.

The Coffee Cup of life – It’s about balance isn’t it?

IMAG1993-1-1-1

Nature does it … balancing things out, working hard at keeping the ecosystem alive and running efficiently (not that we humans have exactly been helping much there).

Know that for everything that happens there is an opposing reaction to balance things out.file000704919536

A forest fire produces vibrant new growth shortly after for example.

Balance in our daily lives is important and one of the hardest things for us to get a handle on.

Whether you’re having a good time or a miserable one, balancing things out so you can move on, go forward is essential.

So a few quotes on the whole “Balance” of things in our life!

~

“The best and safest thing is to keep a balance in your life, acknowledge the great powers around us and in us. If you can do that, and live that way, you are really a wise man” ~ Euripides

~

“What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity devoid of troubling or depressing subject matter – a soothing, calming influence on the mind, rather like a good armchair which provides relaxation from physical fatigue.” ~ Henri Matisse

~

“In art and dream may you proceed with abandon. In life may you proceed with balance and stealth”  ~ Patti Smith

Have a great week, thanks for stopping by, stay balanced!
