Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace. [May Sarton]
Sometimes I am in a big old hurry. Rushing the moment along. Itching to get “on with it” whatever “it” may BE in that moment. I see this about myself. I know it. And sometimes I need some sort of a speed bump to slow me down.
One of the best pieces of advice I ever got was from a horse master. He told me to go slow to go fast. I think that applies to everything in life. We live as though there aren't enough hours in the day but if we do each thing calmly and carefully we will get it done quicker and with much less stress. [Viggo Mortensen]
I have heard this myself. I have even seen it play out in my Life. This is how it is that I have come to live Life as I DO at Present. As I have been living it. I DO my days as a sort of dance. I move through my days with simple JOY at BEing and DOing what I AM and what I DO.
Wisely, and slow. They stumble that run fast. [William Shakespeare]
