quiescence word nerd via LaWhimsyQuiescence, there is something soothing in this this word as one reads it and when saying it I feel relaxed and eased in an easy sort of way. By nature I am not a still or inactive person, however, there is a part of me that does long for that quiet, inner restful state of meditative calm, otherwise known as quiescence.

Quiescence is such a wonderfully tranquil state of being and a refreshing break from the bustly, crazed world that is living (not that it’s a bad thing, but sometimes…).
Quiescence Seated Girl by Moses SoyerI like to use quiescence as a meditative word since it so easily works to say with a soft tone and breath – almost like a gentle wave or worry stone for my mind. Poetic imagery, I know, but it’s true. Try saying it and you’ll see, quiescence…pleasant, isn’t it?
May you have time for some quiescence of your own this week!
