Stillness …

The background to all movement and action is stillness, otherwise there is no purchase … no lever can be applied without a pivot point …

Every step walked … every stride run … each pace plants a foot, to gain purchase …

Every idea, thought eventually emerges from the silent, still spaces between thoughts …

The foreground and background … the Yin and Yang … the light and dark … … all these are the opposite ends of the same stick … when you pick the stick up you cannot get one end alone … no more than you can step in the same river twice … and if metaphors are getting mixed … that’s what words are for …
