Still

I love words. I especially words whose meanings and implications are entirely dependent on context because they have multiple definitions that could be interpreted completely contradictory.

Still is one of those words.

From this one can gather that to be still means to be quiet, unmoving, or at peace, or even dead. But it also refers to a sort of remaining, to still be doing something implies a length of time has passed since one has begun and a sort of constant exists (eg: Still here). Depending on how one chooses to interpret the word still, one can read into a loss (of sound, of motion, of hurt, or even of life), or a constant. Or all of the above. 
I’m kind of all about that.
