Discerning Poise

A little note; the name for this blog was not chosen lightly.

Discernment is “is the activity of determining the value and quality of a certain subject or event, particularly the activity of going past the mere perception of something and making detailed judgments about that thing. As a virtue, a discerning individual is considered to possess wisdom, and be of good judgement; especially so with regard to subject matter often overlooked by others.”

Poise is:

“That which causes a balance; a counterweight.”

“A state of balance, equilibrium or stability

composure; freedom from embarrassment or affectation

A condition of hovering, or being suspended”
