Be still IV


“Nor should one underestimate the importance of the time spent being inactive. I think it was Flaubert who once termed “the marinade” those countless hours that you while away spread out on your couch, seemingly impassive and dejected, not doing much of anything, certainly nothing of social use. And yet, afterwards, when you’ve finished your text, you realize those protracted moments were not only vital but essential to where you were going.”

(Aris Fioretos, interviewed – via wood s lot)

  1. Love the image, Kari, and also very much agree with the words – yes, essential to getting to the journey’s end – and also of being, rather than always doing doing doing. Adrian
