"I love fresh starts. Clean slates. Blank canvases. Choose your metaphor. So often we find ourselves in a frenzy, trapped by expectations, doing all the things, while the ever-present opportunity to quietly sit with ourselves, to evolve, remains an oversight. Finding a point of stillness presents a different kind of consciousness, a more whole way of thinking and being and feeling and acting. It is not about retreating from or escaping the world; on the contrary, it is about carving out time to seek interconnectedness so that we might navigate the busyness (and be present with those who are likewise caught in the whirlwind) from a more peaceful place. It is about deciding what matters most, about what we want to focus on, and what we want to offer the world. The practice is ongoing. There is no destination, and there are no boundaries. It is a slow learning that calms the waters, clearing away the fog and clutter. It allows us to come out from the depths of one mindset into another, as often as we need to do so, so that we may witness all the miracles of our own evolution." Elisabeth Ladwig

"From The Stillness" features a surreal scene with a woman in a red dress standing beneath a classical stone pavilion, which is situated in the middle of a body of water. The pavilion has a large dome that has been replaced by the moon, and it is supported by stone columns adorned with intricate carvings. Beyond the pavilion is a peaceful seascape with a stretch of water leading to an island in the distance. The sky is predominantly clear with a few softly textured clouds, and a flock of birds is seen flying high above the pavilion. The image evokes a sense of calm and solitude, contrasting the architectural structure with the natural elements surrounding it.
