In the Stir


“In the stir of too much motion:

Hold still.

Be quiet.


– Margaret Renkl, Late Migrations


“Hold still.” It’s a curious expression, a lovely image: stillness in our cupped hands, our thirsty hearts, our open minds; restfulness held like a treasure, quietly, carefully, gratefully.

“Hold still.” Nurture peace. Cultivate kindness. Carry the calm.
