Chaotic Symmetry

I find myself so much more centered in the last few months than I've been in a long time.


My being resonates with a happiness and a contentment that I've missed.


Sitting down underneath this apparently chaotic jumble of iron and concrete I focused on that narrow beam of light.


The one in the center.


I studied the lines and the angles of the steel coming from every direction... in what seemed at first glance like a confused and haphazard manner.


In all of the chaos I discovered that there was a beautiful symmetry... there was a center... and as I focused on it... it became somewhat of a metaphor for the past five years of my life.


In the last few months I've found my center.


In all of the chaos and the confusion I guess I'd forgotten where it lay.


I walked away from that bridge feeling content... warm... balanced and happy.


When I found my center again I found myself... and I liked the one I saw.


It's a really good feeling.


Walking down the street I kept thinking about the bridge.


There was something more there.


Then I realized that it was a deeper metaphor than I'd thought.


The last six months of my life... they've been a bridge... a bridge between confusion and chaos and the happiness and contentment that I'd felt as I found my center.


I made the right choice.


I took the right path.
