to go slower & how to get to beautiful
monday morning. cup of coffee. list of things to do. figuring out how to get all the things done, how to go faster.

"Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace." - May Sarton, via planting words
this is a post from july 2010 - i just came across it while revisiting my own blog, and thought i re-post with larger image. and nice coincidence: the "planting words" blog now is named "writing our way home", and the post that is on top there now is about revisiting a book i also have here: Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by R. Pirsig. here's the direct link to the blog post (just in case for the next re-blog in 2 years): How to get to Beautiful...
a quote from Pirsig's book: “We want to make good time, but for us now this is measured with the emphasis on "good" rather than on "time"....”
