The coin toss

The coin toss

There is a very small gap between one side of the coin and the other.
Is it chance that tips your coin over?
Or talent?
Or effort?
Or fate?
Or choice?

Add to the problem that sometimes it’s hard to pick which side of the coin you are actually on.


genius – stupid

sane – insane

thoughtful – selfish

independent – dependent

social – private

extrovert – introvert

hero – villain

togetherness – loneliness

question – answer

freedom – control

happy – sad

idle – busy

creative – unimaginative

art – rubbish

Today I was melancholy. I created. Is it art or just an attempt at art, aka. rubbish? Toss that coin.


About lisasretro

I'm a 41 year old teacher, single and have one adult son. I'm currently finding a new me and new style of living while learning to manage chronic illness. In short, my mind is over active and my body can't keep up. I love art, retro and vintage stuff, eclectic fashion and travelling anywhere and everywhere. I often also get all caught up in social justice issues, my fave being marriage equality, until it happens here in Aus. Bucket list enabled, hold on tight.
