Finding Stillness is a weekly series on ways I find stillness without meditating. Follow the tag to read the other posts.
I put on a favorite album, and close my eyes.
My body starts to move. Breathe in, sway, breathe out, step.
I move, erratically. Arms find their way above my head and down to my hips.
My hips turn, I start to smile.
I feel my whole body, every muscle becomes breath, every step becomes joy.
When I open my eyes I can’t tell how much time has passed. All there is, is pure joy and stillness.
My body stands still and I smile.
Then the next track begins. I close my eyes and start anew.
