There just isn't much question that balance is one of the most necessary things in life to keep things going smoothly. I tend to be horrible at maintaining it! I, and my wife Heidi as well, both get our minds on something and almost everything else is put off until we have satisfied that particular interest to a cogent state of being. We both however know this about ourselves and constantly work towards more equilibrium.
While working to get the big wave of modifications done on Taj, we had put off many of the healthy and fun activities we normally do. There are still many projects in progress and in the future for Taj, but now that the majority of the larger ones are done and we are again living in a more nomadic way, we are back to trying to get our lives in balance. The guitar has come out of it's case and my fingers are again sore but it is a pleasant pain! The mountain bikes both have dirt on the tires other than from dust settling on them while perched in their rack. The jewelry tools have come back out of hiding and a dozen other activities are again part of our lives and will be the subject of many future blog posts! This blog is also going to be given an increased effort to make it a hopefully more enjoyable and interesting place to visit.
The goal is simple. Balance in all areas of life; Spiritual, Health, Family, Fun, and "Work" (though it is hard to give it that name). Living the Vantramp lifestyle makes all of these goals much easier to attain for us. We hope that you are all able to find the right balance in your lives as well.
