Take it Further Challenge (August)

Sharon said "I my chaotic and hectic life I often admire people who are able to maintain balance in their lives. What is balance to you? Do you maintain a balanced life? How do you balance aspects of your life? That is the challenge this month - balance."
I sort of touched on this subject last month here and at the moment I seem to have reached a creative black hole with regard to this. Possibly the balance between work and real life is tipping the wrong way or may be its just that as I get older, I want to spend more time doing what I enjoy doing...............I'm only 48 so waiting to do everything when I retire is not an option.......
Anyway, I have spent time this month playing with my new toys and need to spend time planning our next road trip so all I have for TIF so far is a couple of Sketches.

TIF August
TIF August

Will have to let this one simmer for a while.

Hi, GuzziSue!

Great post!

Balance is an ongoing struggle for most folks. I think it tips to the right or left at different times. Stress or fatigue is usually an indicator that I'm "out of balance." When that happens, I stop, take a break in silence and readjust . . . until the next time. ;-D

Forty-eight is young. You're right. Play now!

Ooh, I love the photo in the lower right hand corner. Good luck with August. I have no idea where I'm going with the challenge this month.

That is a hard theme, both visually and conceptually. I like what you're starting with though - good luck!
