Anyone seen the middle?

My friend of friend C~ blogged recently about finding the middle. The middle - where you can view life from both sides and not shoot off in one direction or the other without first undertaking some serious contemplation... do I have this right?

Personally I think that I sway from middle to one extreme, to the other extreme, back to the middle.... without ever crossing an extreme line. At least I haven't crossed any extreme lines lately.

This weekend I had a memory from early 1996, I had two choices before me: Join the army, or go work in Austria. I had applied for a program in the army and was waiting for the recruiter to phone me back and I'd also applied for a job as an assistant trainer at a ranch in Austria. I couldn't make up my mind which road to take... so I decided that whoever called me back first would get dibs.

The Austrian called back first. An hour later the recruiter called.

I was an hour away from a very different life. I'm so glad that I went down this path. Sure there were bumps in the road, but if you expect life to be bump-free... you're really in for some serious problems.
