Art and Stillness


“Art has something to do with

the achievement of stillness in the midst of chaos.

A stillness which characterizes prayer, too,

and the eye of the storm . . .

an arrest of attention in the midst of distraction.”

– Saul Bellow, quoted in Writers at Work, edited by George Plimpton


Find your place of stillness, your prayer, your eye of the storm. Rest in it, embody it, for you are a work of art.

Nurture peace, cultivate kindness, and carry the calm.
