It has been a week since our country split itself over who they want to represent us in the office of the presidency. I was having a conversation with a friend last night who was very optimistic, even though their candidate did not win, and it was still pretty tough for me. I appreciate optimism and her heart was in the right place but I am not there yet. I am still grieving. I will rally, I will stand up peacefully against the unjust, but I still need some time to recover.
So this morning it felt right to post this new video, Stillness. It's a classical piece from my album and we caught this performance as a happenstance. We were shooting something else and I sat down to play this in a break and @shaunboyte captured it. We shot it in the newness of dawn, it's quiet, I actually don't play it perfectly, but it was a peaceful moment.
We all need more moments of stillness and selah in our lives. Especially when we are grieving change. To those of you needing some stillness I hope this brings you some peace.
