The path of reconciliation

I realize now that my whole life has been about reconciliation; about building, depicting, or serving as a bridge between opposites -- between right brain and left, between my verbose artist mom and my taciturn engineer father, between the Divine without and the Divine within, between the churched and the unchurched, individual and community, generalized and particular, Christianity and Buddhism, conservative and liberal -- and now, through art, between concrete and abstract, straight lines and curved; planned and unplanned...

Could it be that search for balance is life's task for each of us?
