“the important stuff will still be important by the time you get to it. the unimportant will have made its insignificance obvious or simply disappear. then, with stillness rather than needless urgency or exhaustion, you will be able to sit down and give what deserves consideration your full attention.” – Ryan Holiday, Stillness is the Key
a carload and more of grandies,
a sweet niece, baron the dog, and a family of ducklings
inventing the day as they go.
“some of the secret joys of living
are not found by rushing from point A to point B,
but by inventing some imaginary letters along the way. “
~douglas pagels: These Are the Gifts I’d Like to Give to You
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
