When is it enough?

When is it enough?

Okay, here's a question.
When is enough enough? When do you have just the right number of things and when do you have too much? How do you know when you get there. What do you do?

It's not just things, but all sorts of other stuff too. How much love is enough? How much duty? How much time? How do you know when you're doing X right? It's like I was supposed to develop this balance inside and out and I never did. As ataxic in the mind and spirit as I am in the body.

And believe me when I say that's not a slam. It just *is*. I have to see how I am, before I can see that I need to change and how I need to change.

Some people seem to have it, an effortless sense of when to stop laughing, when to tell a joke when to be somber. It's a fluid poise that never seems to desert them. I say 'seems' because they might well be paddling like hell underneath but they don't let it show.

I have to find that point of enough, and learn to let go. I can't estimate what I need only fluctuate along the scale of what I want, and that's not the same thing at all.
  • It's illegal to shoot off fireworks here in DE, which is a real bummer since there are only 2 places close by that have fireworks shows. Down at the fairgrounds (hot, dusty, crowded) and on the town green (crowded). We had some sparklers though, and roast marshmallows at the bonfire that we had.

    I love the way you described it though; I could close my eeys and see it. The clouds, the streetlights, all of it. beautiful.
