Someone asked me today how I balance the math & physics side of myself with my creative, literary side. I said:
“Life is all about balance, isn’t it? It’s about standing under the sky at night and dancing with the stars. It’s about love poems to the setting sun and sharing grief with the predawn moon. It’s about walking in the wilderness and knowing that even if I die, some part of me will walk out whole, ready to enter the land of milk and honey.
“It’s about looking at those around me and caring more about what they need than what I want. It’s about laughter and joy and being gentle with myself when I do get knocked awry. It’s about believing. And I choose to believe deeply in God, in good, in love, in those around me. I believe.”
