Balance in photos and actions
February was about collecting instances of my word, Balance. I found it everywhere - in my photo archives (me in the denim dress trying not to fall over on a sand dune), in magazines (Psychologies, bottom right), in art (Adam Pretty's image of divers in China), postcards (UPPERCASE's gorgeous Work/Life 2 promo), cereal packets and bills.
Now to put the word into action. Mine was simple - I started a beginner's T'ai Chi class this week. So far, so good! It's already struck me, the discipline you need to keep being balanced - within the movements of the 'form' as they call it, and life in general. This isn't just something I can fix once, I know I need to keep working at it. I can already see that practising the physicality and the mental state of balance in this way is going to be really good for me.
