“And so the truth is
that as much as we love to be alone,
we want to be together.
It is the paradox of the poem,
playing out in our very life.
The poem is most usually written in solitude.”
~ From “Purple Bottle Journal” in Love. Etc.: Poems of Love, Laughter, Longing, & Loss by L.L. Barkat

In the stillness,
Welcome to the Still Saturday Community where we pause after a busy week, move in quiet pilgrimage, maybe linger a while in some still place, and soak in the beauty of images and words. We’d love for you to join us. Get the details on the left, grab your favorite button, and link up below. We all love to hear if something especially speaks to your heart, but please don’t feel pressured to comment. Simply take some time to gaze long and drink deep.
