Other people’s words about … the sky
Axel … breathed out, trying for calm. He tipped his head back, looked at the sky, wide and empty of trouble. His heart slowed. The moment passed.

Oh, that beautiful sky …

Lovely pix! The sky is an anchor for me, too. No matter where you are, it is as well. There is something reassuring in its constant presence.
What a lovely turn of phrase, Eliza — ‘the sky is an anchor’. I love your wording because anchors represent being grounded, attached to the land, and yet the sky represents the opposite, infinity and the heavens, if you know what I mean?
And yes, I think that as far as anxiety management techniques go, simply stopping to look up at the sky — wherever I am, whether I’m inside a building, in a street, by the beach, in the bush; and whatever the time of day — is honestly the most effective one I know.
