Going to Extremes

The right way usually lies between two extremes: it is the narrow channel between the rock and the whirlpool.
                                                               ~ Charles Spurgeon

Moving from Minnesota to Arizona, from -25 cold to 100+ heat. Exercising frantically or not at all. Abstaining from sugar and caffeine or indulging wildly, going overboard. Saying too much or too little, leaning left or right, tailgating for miles or trailing far behind, then running out of gas. Holding forth on the median, longing for the traffic from both directions to slow.
