100 Words: Relentless

intercostals christmas lightsNeighbors’ dueling light displays. Glowering at each other. Competing for Most Festive.
Holly-Jolly-Jingle-Bell-Rock-Santa-Baby in every store.
Bags and tins and boxes of chocolate-covered buttercream sugar balls.


Or is relentless an illusion?

Just like the intercostal muscles. Not the muscles that never rest.
Muscle pairs get space and rest in every breath.

I’m reminded:
“Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.”

Intercostals’ invitation: find peace interwoven in the fabric of living.
