I am no poet
I do not like to write much
I attempt #Haiku

I’m not conventional. But I like tradition.
I push the limits; within limits.
Happiness can incite complacency.
Comfort can incite complacency.
Complacency can be comfortable.
It is easy to take happiness and comfort for granted.
Until it’s gone.
What is the next thing to push me out of my comfort range? What is the thing that will challenge me?
There is a big, wide world out there. Too many things to do and see in a lifetime. And yet, I haven’t moved fast enough to fill my life.
Or maybe I’ve moved too fast to allow my life to become filled.
I like to be on the move, but it is good to know where home is.
Some discovery needs to be done alone. I have done that. Even more can be done with someone; that, I’ve yet to do.
Life is a constant challenge of balance. Finding the knife-edge of balance is one challenge, the other is maintaining it.
Maybe, balancing life is easiest when you have a partner to hold on to.
If you have a partner balancing you, it is too easy not to notice that you are not standing upright by yourself.
Until that support is missing.
Such are the challenges life outside the edge of convention.
And appreciate it and those in it.
