In the story A Darker Shade of Magic by VE Schwab, as travars appears often for travel or in their case a sort of teleportation. In some way it has hit home for me- connecting with me. I cannot describe what it is about it fully. I just feel calm and a little more hopeful after saying it or writing it.
Today is not a very good day. Although I try to keep gloom at bay, it crept in silently and intertwined itself entirely. I find myself repeating it over and over to feel that ease in my heartbeat and the steadiness of my breath.
Something simple. Something connected to the things that I adore. I found this within the pages of a loved book. I found this to be a way of serenity. I found this, “as travars”, to be a way of steadiness.
I am very grateful for it. Specially with a day of saddness and moments feeling trapped.
