Going slow

I went for a long bike ride on Sunday, a route that took me through a residential neighborhood. There was a sign in the neighborhood that said “Go Slow.” The words were painted on a turtle, as if a child created it. It had the desired affect–I slowed down.

I love cycling slow. It enables you to see more, to pay more attention. It enables better thought. Everyone I work with is speeding up, trying to get more done in less time. I’m tired of trying to do that. No more. I’m with whoever made this sign: let’s slow it down.
