“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. “

go slow.

go slow reminder sign

with the world spinning by

and the kinders

always moving so fast

(with frequent collateral damage)

we decided

to try slowing things down a bit

so

they painted signs as reminders

practiced spelling and saying it

posted them around the room

first day –

one hit his head

because he

‘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.
