The Balance - a feather does it

If you watch this- and I hope you do, it is so eleoquent - do watch it right to the end.

Thanks to Kim for the tip-off.


  1. Isn't it just, Charles. She's performing at the international circus arts awards or some such. Circus skill? OK, but rather more than that, I think. Meditation made visible?

  2. I love the ending where she takes the feather away. Beautiful illustration of the power of the small.

  3. Yes Vale, me too, hence my suggestion that people stay till the end - a truly perfect balance. I'm taken over by her total absorption in the task; she shows not a flicker when people applaud, as they do with increasing delight and surprise, and by the deliberate nature of her movements. She is "in the flow," it's zen made visible, I think. Total identity with the present moment.
