Balanced Stack of Rocks

A Reminder from the Universe?

2012 has been a very tough year on the family front with numerous challenges, few of which have I shared on my blog. Two such challenges continue to unfold even now.

And today, in downtown Sausalito, I was reminded that even those things which may appear completely rough-hewn, lopsided, and disconnected in life are part of a larger balance to the universe. I’m not sure why I believe this, but, for some reason I actually do.

The simple act of rock balancing

A man was creating these rock stacks as if only he and the rocks themselves were present in this time and place. Fully present in what appeared to be a moment of devotion and serenity, he seemed to collaborate with the calm of nature. People, many people, stood quietly taking photos of his slow and patient work as if this were a solemn place nurtured by silent, peaceful acceptance.
