“let your children see you slow down.
read a book, walk in the woods,
sip coffee in the early hours of the morning.
because when they grow up,
they’ll know how to slow down, too.”
go slow reminder sign
with the world spinning by
and the kinders
always moving so fast
(with frequent collateral damage)
to try slowing things down a bit
they painted signs as reminders
practiced spelling and saying it
posted them around the room
first day –
one hit his head
‘decided to jump backwards’
one fell down
while stretching and balancing
on a shaky stool
one banged something
when skipping down the hall.
we’re still working out the details.
wisely, and slow. they stumble that run fast.
– william shakespeare
