Balanced [Photo Hunt]

No doubt Franzia and April were rediscovering their inner child as they frolicked at the children's playground. Experts say that so much creative energy is lost when we give up our spirit of childhood and choose to look at the world only through the safety goggles of emotional detachment.

Be aware of wonder.
Live a balanced life--learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some. ~ Robert Fulghum

A seesaw is a good balance indicator---it looks like Franzia had too much rice that day.:p

I think people are too afraid of appearing childish that they lose important childlike abilities like enthusiasm and a sense of wonder. Personally think that there needs to be a balance between being matured and childlike (which really is not the same as childish).

Whenever I think of balance, a teeter totter is one of the first things I think of. It's a classic. I love the way this one looks natural, like you could find it anywhere in the woods.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Wonderful! And I like the board on the log seesaw!

Can't wait until weather does allow it again to visit the playground with my small son. Thank you for the memories and a nice Sunday to you.

TeacherJulie said...

I was thinking of posting something like this but I don't have the right photo from my archive. I suddenly remember my seesaw playmates. Ang hirap magbalance that time.
