I have been reflecting on what slow living means to me ever since writing my post yesterday. As I said then, living here is anything but slow. But is it really?
Many years ago ( a life time it seems) we bought a hand operated coffee grinder. It was a conscious decision to slow down. Mark said that if we didn't have time to grind the coffee we didn't have time to drink it. So we would have to do without. Now anyone who knows Mark knows that this isn't an option, so everday we take the time to slow down and grind the coffee. We generally only have this stove top esspresso coffee at morning tea time. And so our morning teas have become more of a ritual,a special time to gather and enjoy each others company as well as the food.
Once a week I will share with you the ways in which we have slowed down. How have you slowed down?
