On approaching slowness


click for: Quicktime version / Flash version

"To wait means to live the present moment fully. When this happens, the present reveals itself as that which cannot readily be seen through. Waiting may sounds like doing nothing for the present, but it is not an escape from reality. To wait is to hesitate or to unplug, to create a short circuit, and by doing so, delay the automatic judgments which societies, enamored with speed, demands of us."

On an short week-end excursion, Sam Renseiw experiences the combined bliss of serendipity and of a Walden-like cabin, having a great deal of fine company in the small house; especially in the morning, when nobody calls.

but then slowness might get tooo lingering...
it's the longing for it, that lodges the seemingly swift rush.
