My tiny quest for quiet.
.
The noise of the world often gets too much for me. I measure my days to ensure there are pockets of peace scattered throughout, my safe spaces where I can let the dust of my mind settle. Social media, and connection in here is definitely a challenge for me. I'm trying to find balance between the energy of the interactions in here that spark joy, and my need for pause and peace. The space within these two bubbles is where I wish to sit. Do you guys know that poem by A.A.Milne...
.
“Halfway down the stairs, is a stair, where I sit. There isn't any, other stair, quite like, it. I'm not at the bottom, I'm not at the top; So this is the stair, where, I always, stop. Halfway up the stairs, isn't up, and isn't down. It isn't in the nursery, it isn't in the town. And all sorts of funny thoughts, run round my head: It isn't really anywhere! It's somewhere else instead!”
.
My mum used to sing this to us a lot when we were small, but it makes sense for me in this context. I've not yet found that stair just yet... but this week I'm going to try to listen in more and feel when the energy pull either way is too strong.

How do you cultivate your quiet?
