any self-regulating process by which biological systems tend to maintain stability
while adjusting to conditions that are optimal for survival.
If homoeostasis is successful, life continues; if unsuccessful, disaster or death ensues. 
The stability attained is actually a dynamic equilibrium, in which continuous change occurs yet relatively uniform conditions prevail."

-Encyclopedia Brittanica

For some reason I thought I was in charge of my equilibrium.

Turns out,  I was wrong.  I was leaking air, but so slowly and subtly that I scarcely noticed.  
When I finally noticed, I reached out, some people reached back, they helped me inflate again.

I hover, just above the ground, awaiting a gust of wind to send me aloft again.
