Looking back over my long-life addictive writing, I see that Time, Balance and
Love have been constant themes. It seems that I have come to see life as Time
allotted or serendipitously acquired; that maintaining Balance is what we are
programmed to do with a lifetime. Unbalanced, we teeter totter on the tightrope
that is life stretched from birth to death; the tightrope journey that can terrify but,
also can excite – as when the child balanced on a high-wire cries “Hey Mum! Hey
Dad!

A broadening of the scope of cerebellar plasticity comes compellingly from
studies in which rats were given "acrobatic" training by challenging them to
acquire complex motor skills necessary to traverse a series of obstacles,
involving moving over barriers and balancing on teeter-totters and tightropes (
Figure 13.18, top). Rats with such training developed an increased volume of the
parallel fiber layer in the cerebellar cortex and an increased number of synapses
onto Purkinje cells ...

In these studies rats were given “acrobatic” training by challenging them to
acquire complex motor skills necessary to traverse a series of obstacles,
involving moving over barriers and balancing on teeter-totters and tightropes.
Rats with such training developed a thicker parallel fiber layer in the cerebellar
cortex and an increased number of synapses onto Purkinje cells without an
increase in synaptic density. Control rats exercised in a running wheel without
acrobatic training, thereby ...

... a sponge for a brain, and a mop for a heart: he'll soak up your love if you let
him and leave you as dry as a cork. he'll punch out your guts There's a limerick
quality to some of this, a playfulness that is eerily at home with the violence of the
poem. Your work walks this tightrope between two sides, two very opposite tones.
Does that metaphor resonate for you in terms of this poem? DAP: I like to think of
it as a teeter-totter, but a tightrope works — except that I'm afraid of heights [
laughs].

For example, traditional shame baskets were carried around on the head of a
person who did something wrong as punishment to show shame for their
transgression. There would be a worldwide epidemic of osteoporosis if
everybody did that today. There were exhibitions of horseback acrobatics,
traditional dancing, tightrope walking, and teeter-totter jumping which all
demonstrated physical strength and agility. As we encountered new things, I'd
toss out a suggestion of what they may ...

His model is right to promote this sort of “balance” between God's love and wrath.
on the other hand, it is also possible for us to be misled in our understanding of
God if we conceive of “balance” in the wrong way. for many of us, the idea of
balance conjures up mental images such as hanging scales in an old-fashioned
marketplace, a teeter-totter on a playground, or a tightrope walker at the circus. In
each of these instances, the key to maintaining balance is to put equal weight on
both ...

One of my early experiences with balance was on a tightrope as well, or at least a
sort-of-one. I was ten or so, and a friend I often played with after school instituted “
circus practice” for us. She declared that we would “learn to walk the tightrope.”
She also promised me that her father, who ... The plank was wide and even when
it flipped up behind us like a teeter-totter, as it was wont to do at times, the ground
was so near we could jump down easily. Our practices fell on hard times when I ...
