The Magic of Balance

My friend and editor sent me a picture that she said described the protagonist in the book I was writing. She was too kind to say that it described me. It showed a female figure with arms outstretched against a field of stars trying to balance on the back of an enormous horse rearing up on its hind legs. If only I’d understood what it meant.

The answer didn’t come as an aha moment. It was more as if I finally saw how to meld together all I had learned. It was the magical balancing of polarities: masculine and feminine, spirit and soul, Heaven and Earth, left brain rational and right brain intuition, aggression and receptivity. I'd spent a lifetime focused on one half of each pair.
