The stillness of Joburg

I have just finished painting my nails and as I am sitting it just got me how quiet this rukus of a city.

There is a stillness for once in this place.

A stillness I would like to acquire in my life. See we don’t get a pause button , there is no shutting down for us. We just (if we lucky) get weekend getaways or take leave from work (which honestly doesn’t do enough for us).

So how do I get this constant peace? This stillness I long for. How to do I get to be the calm before the storm ( the storm really being my daily life).

Or do we never really get stillness? Do we just get to find coping mechanisms and deal?

Just trying to figure it out.
