Trying to Stay Balanced

This week's 52frames theme/challenge was "balance." I'd say that it's something we should try to achieve, balance in our life, our aims, actions etc.  It's being realistic.

I lost balance somehow rushing down to the bus stop yesterday and fell, potentially really badly. That's why I consider the damage and injuries to be minor. Everything could have had been much worse. My hand, knee and new glasses are all banged, scraped and scratched. But a just slightly worse landing could have broken my glasses, even endangering my eyes, broken nose and teeth or even just cut up my face or broken my hand. So, kapporah, I can't complain.

At work I filed an "accident on the way to work" report in case I suddenly do feel more damaged.  The funny thing about my glasses slightly pushed down on one side is that now I see better out of them.  And since they are multifocal a pretty new, I can and have to report that this new "alignment," aka "balance" seems to be better for me. Now I don't have to try hard to find the "right spot" for various distances. The frames may look "unbalanced," but the lenses now are "better balanced" for my vision.

Here's my picture:

It's too busy.  I should have used one of these perhaps...

Oy, hope you are not feeling too bruised. Maybe you should take the glasses back to have them realigned.

B"H could be worse. I'll be going to the optician any how on Wed. after Matan to get the reading glasses.
