The Discovery of Slowness: hectic and the duty to increase steadily the pace are taking our life quality, or make us increasingly ill. A strategy of resistance: the “slowdown” instead of acceleration. You could learn from animals.

If we all moved slower, I think we would solve many of our physical ills and eliminate a lot of stress.

Slow is good if I remember correctly.
Yes, yes, yes….we are preparing for a retreat to a lodge in northern MN where there are no phones and no TV….one must slow down. Great post!
Isn’t it interesting that you wrote a mini thought thesis on this subject because we are all in too much of a hurry to read a longer version. This has been on my mind a lot lately, as my own life gets busier. I like the idea of walking at a goose’s pace, or a horse’s pace. But not a cheetah! 🙂
for sure it is a great difference
between your high speed minded New York
and actually the timeless silence of the mountains.
We have a friend who escaped from New York
(working there as a teacher)
to Boulder (now horse back riding
in the Rocky Mountains…)
