In truth we’re all just pottering, filling the time that we have here, only we like to make ourselves feel bigger by compiling lists of importance.
So this is what you do when it all slows down and the minutes that tick by feel a little longer than before. You take your time. You breathe slowly. You open your eyes a little wider and look at everything. Take it all in. Rehash stories if old, remember people, times and occasions gone by. Allow everything you see to remind you of something. Talk about those things and make those things you notice matter. Find out the answers you didn’t know to yesterday’s crosswords. Slow down. Stop trying to do everything now, now, now. Hold up the people behind you for all you care, feel them kicking at your heels but maintain your pace. Don’t let anyone dictate your speed. – Cecelia Aherne (Thanks for the memories)
