“To say the word Romanticism is to say modern art — that is, intimacy, spirituality, color, aspiration towards the infinite, expressed by every means available to the arts.”

~ Charles Baudelaire


Going out to the creek lately has been very peaceful and quiet compared to the warm busy days of summer. With Fall underway, the colors are in full swing here in Boulder.  Temperatures have also dropped considerably along with increased rain this week.  These conditions have an intimate effect on the balance experience, and just being outside in general. Normally most people like to stay inside in these conditions, but I find the atmosphere quite romantic. This sense of romance really came through yesterday in my balance session. This balance felt right through the entire build. very little hesitation, then, before I thought, it stood elegantly over a slow moving pool in the creek.  Humidity was high and colors were full after the fresh rain.  And the reflecting balance and turning trees added the final touch of comprehensive perfection to the experience.
