I have heard of this concept in relation to the “slow food” movement – a friend of mine was a “slow food” chef. I was most annoyed when he moved off to Cali. I missed his imperceptibly-moving chow. 😀
Except for jello, I generally prefer my food not to move at all.
I kind of take things slow. I say kind of because I used to try to move fast and get as much done as possible. Then enter a move to Florida where the heat forces s l o w. I don’t wear a slow wind-up wrist watch though, I use a wind-up pocket watch. I write with a pencil or fountain pen, and I prefer a manual typewriter over an electric or the PC.
Love the book. It’s one of my favorites. I read it several times. I’d love to live as in the book.
For “slowness” one would suppose a pocket watch trumps a wristwatch, however – I do believe a good pocket watch is more accurate!
Poignant and funny as usual, nice post!
