Seasons are inherently unbalanced . . .
The watchword for seasons isn’t balance. It’s rhythm.
We crave balance but need rhythm.
For everything there is a season . . .
But here’s what I keep trying to say: It’s impossible to pursue anything without forsaking other things. It’s impossible to live in the grip of a pursuit and manage it in some balanced way. By their very nature, grand pursuits demand sacrifice. They require that we live gloriously lopsided. Magnificently obsessed . . .
I recommend we abandon the dream of balance . . .

In the stillness,
Welcome to the Still Saturday Community where we pause after a busy week, move in quiet pilgrimage, maybe linger a while in some still place, and soak in the beauty of images and reflect on the depth of sparse words. We’d love for you to join us. Grab the button and link up below. We all love to hear if something especially speaks to your heart, but please don’t feel pressured to comment. Simply take some time to be still together, to gaze long and drink deep.
