The eye of the storm is the still point in the centre where nothing moves.
The eye of the storm is a commonly used metaphor. A place of peace, silence and magical stillness, it usually refers to a false or temporary period of calm.
The central eye has one major disadvantage as a refuge: the only way out of the storm is through it.
The Eye of the Storm is also the title of a novel by Patrick White, and a movie starring Charlotte Rampling, Judi Davis and Geoffrey Rush.
