Story time! :)
with every balance i create and share there is always a string of more subtle events that connect most creations through time and space.
For example, This balance, and the little round rock near the top! —
I liked that little rock so much that i carried it around in my pocket since the day *before the equinox (19 March, 2015), unsure how i would use it, but still sure it would come in handy at some point. This balance was a fairly involved doodle i made the day *after the equinox (Today), after messing around with my new arch all day (detailed Earlier Today) — finally getting it up to my extreme standards. This was more of a victory balance to unwind from a full day of obsessively adjusting my arch.
I knew it wouldn’t last long, collapsing about 20 minutes after zero, on a completely still day. I wouldn’t even splash water on it due to its extreme precision. But I risked my round rock anyway.
Upon collapse, my little round rock disappeared in the flow of water… seemingly lost forever, as i couldn’t find it anywhere. . .
So i started working again on my arch, playing with the negative space of the center circle, and realized that the little round one was THE key to my newfound bullseye. Anyone who plays with rocks in a stream like this usually knows that if a very specific size and shape of rock is sought for, that it almost never appears. the magic ones only start appearing when i’m focused elsewhere.
i KNEW it was there somewhere, which is why i felt the need to return under a bright sun to look for the “keystone” to complete my center point. . . to be continued . . .
now time to prepare for a relatively rainy, windy German island with an unknown local rock selection… maybe now i should start that 5 day “stone balance **challenge**” that lotsa ppl nominated me to do over the last few weeks. but now, it really is a “challenge”

THIS balance though! :))
