going slowly (or: to see the sea)
day 8 of the island time. this morning, i browsed the other 5k-blogs and arrived at one that spoke to me: Slow walking a 5k on a spectacular Sunday
such a good reminder, arriving just at the right time. even here, on the island, a lot of things are about going faster, going many places, seeing it all, getting a fast tan.
in the hum of all, it's easy to forget that it's not about arriving first. it's about the journey.
Smile, breathe and go slowly.
