Yin and Yang

Officially, according to wikipedia – “” meaning “dark and light”, is used to describe how polar opposites or seemingly contrary forces are interconnected and interdependent in the natural world, and how they give rise to each other in turn. Opposites thus only exist in relation to each other.””

Good grief, I have just realised how mundane it all is – have now resorted to using an esoterical concept to pretty up my life. A complicated, whirlpool and upside down mixer of good and bad and push and pull all inexorably bound by the evil, self perpetuating world of busy! Sometimes it is (what I would imagine) a insect feels trapped in a glass jar, feebly beating its wings against its impenetrable prison with no hope of ever being released. On other days, an eagle riding high on a swirling thermal – majestic, untouchable and in complete control.

So, the yin and the yang ………………….


“A cloud does not know why it moves in just such a direction and at such a speed… It feels an impulsion… this is the place to go now.  But the sky knows the reasons and the patterns behind all clouds, and you will know, too, when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond horizons.”  ~Richard Bach

  1. You got to have yin, you got to have yang. Shame, really. Wish you could just have the nice stuff. That’s a nice bench….i could see myself eating my packed lunch there…

  2. It’s true, sometimes we do feel as if we are trapped in a jar, at other times we are flying free. The hills in your photo with the bench are glorious. What a view!
