"When sixty-two-year-old Eveline Miller practices when she needs to sort things through, she goes to her grandmother's rocking chair, sits, and rocks. When she was a child and needed comfort, this was where she used to go to lay her head upon her grandmother's lap. Her grandmother would stroke her hair and say. 'This too will pass.' Now, as Eveline rocks and thinks; she repeats those words to help calm herself and provide perspective."
