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.

What? I am the first person to comment? How can that be? This is an awesome photo, Dorothee. The change in colors, the depth. I wish I were there right now. So serene and welcoming.
