The Art of Stillness

This little book by Pico Iyer, subtitled "Adventures in Going Nowhere" is a brief and simple reflection challenging the reader to stop in these words:

"At some point, all the horizontal trips in the world stop compensating for the need to go deep, into somewhere challenging and unexpected; movement makes most sense when grounded in stillness.

In an age of speed, I began to think, "nothing could be more invigorating than going slow. In an age of distraction, nothing could feel more luxurious than paying attention. And in an age of constant movement, nothing is more urgent than sitting still."

In what has become a theme of my sabbatical year, more and more resources have arisen in complete surprise, andI am offered resonance and grace in unexpected places.
