"Balance is like a Lava Lamp. Your energy flows to whatever the priority is in a moment, day, week, or even longer. Later, it flows to other areas."
"Balance is like success: It's hard to define because it's different for everyone. Figure out what works for you, and stick to it as much as possible. There will always be work to do, but you deserve a life, too."
"Balance is like fresh produce - it can spoil easily and requires constant maintenance. Search out the skill of maintaining balance through motion"
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
