The picture of today was taken around Christmas time last year and I personally perceive it as having a very reassuring quality.
This has to do with the fact that all these women in their nakedness, and thus in their vulnerability, are apparently having a good time being, bathing, playing, swimming, standing and laughing in and with the waves of the sea.
It is a graphic image of how life is being dealt with: all the ups and downs that women share: where one falls, the other lifts her up. Where one is about to drown, the other holds her head over the water. Where one is laughing everybody is having a good time.
We are always in one position or the other: sometimes we are the one drowning and sometimes we are the one holding our friend’s head so that she can breath. This is exactly what balance in action is all about. Life is always moving and we are all trying to cope with the movements as best as we can and from the position we find ourselves in. Some do better than others with these changes, but from the fluidity in this picture it is obvious that where there is more flexibility there is more and faster regaining your balance …… just to find out that life has offered you another opportunity for experience and another possibility to find your way to balance.
