All around me friends are struggling to find a healthy work-life balance, while the planet is wobbling ever further out of balance at an alarming rate. So, to restore a semblance of balance into somewhat precarious times, here are a few zen-like, restorative photos to calm things down. First up, a rather talented yoga practitioner at a mass group yoga session in Times Square for the Summer Solstice. Nice one, New York.
Learning to walk the tightrope at May Day celebrations in Seattle.
Channeling animals with Tai Chi at the Chinese New Year celebrations in Dublin’s Temple Bar.
Perfectly balanced tops on fairy chimneys in Cappadocia.
I hope he doesn’t lose his balance. I don’t fancy a face full of squirrel, thanks.
