I keep getting this message from the universe. After a busy weekend away, I’m listening.
“If you’re having difficulty coming up with new ideas, then slow down. For me, slowing down has been a tremendous source of creativity. It has allowed me to open up — to know that there’s life under the earth and that I have to let it come through me in a new way. Creativity exists in the present moment. You can’t find it anywhere else.”
~ Natalie Goldberg
Slow down, you move too fast.
You got to make the morning last.
Just kicking down the cobble stones.
Looking for fun and feelin’ groovy.
~ Simon and Garfunkel
P.S. This 550 ft Ferris wheel is in Las Vegas. It’s brand new and can hold 1100 people. It moves verrrry slowly. I spent a lot of time watching it as I stood in the parking lot below for much of the weekend. Slow can be intimidating (or downright scary). It can also be really, really good.
