    Tags: balance, equipoise, vibrant   

    This interesting op-ed by David Brooks called “In Praise of Equipoise” includes some of the reasons I started this site, and the Los Angeles Variety People meetup group.

      Highly recommended. Here’s one quick quote from it: “The second step is to refuse to be a monad.”

    On Variety and Not Getting Stuck 

    Having more variety in your life means you have the option of not clinging so tightly to one thing, or to a few things. So, in a sense, it allows a lighter touch. It is perhaps something like non-attachment, in the Buddhist sense. You can have a looser attitude and approach. This also puts you in a more neutral position, allowing you to react more swiftly and well to things that need your attention. It’s not balance, because balance is ephemeral. It’s more an ever-renegotiated balance, if you want to use the word balance. But the sense I have of this not clinging is also a sense of not thinking so much, and of not getting stuck thinking about something, or stuck doing something.
