Finding the Balance

Bill Dan Balancing Rocks . . ., originally uploaded by bebalance.

Isn't this photo amazing? These rocks are balancing in spite of their asymmetry.

Those who create these incredible sculptures say that to succeed in rock balancing, you must both find the natural curves and crevices in the rocks and determine the balance point of the rocks so that they will fit together and remain in balance.

Bill Dan, the creator of this sculpture and many others, has stated that the "meaning" of his sculptures is this:

"Some people try to make things too complicated. This is the opposite."

Finding balance can beuncomplicated?

Hmmm. Not easy, mind you. But not so complex that we can't manage to find it.

You may have noticed that this is my first post in several days. I myself am trying to find the balance between work, family, blog, Godeach "rock" having unique features and balance points.

So, readers, please understand and be patientI'm finding my balance. bjh
