Slow Down You Are Moving Too Fast
Slow Down You Are Moving Too Fast I have been known to speak too quickly. Sometimes speaking before thinking if I am not mindful. Moving too quickly. Bypassing or skipping things as the world goes by. There's a lot to be said for slowing down. I am definitely trying it more. Each and every day. Being deliberate. Focus. Staying aware. And in-the-now. Success? I don't claim so. Again, a work-in-progress is a more apt description.
The other day Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP commented on one of my posts where I used a photo of the Colorado Street Bridge in Pasadena, CA and she wrote of her fondness and appreciation of bridges. She didn't mention the 59th Street Bridge but her comment led me to thinking of it as this post came to be. I thank her for that inspiration. Her posts and comments to me as well as others are always thoughtful as well as thought-provoking. If you don't follow Patricia as a regular subscriber I suggest you do.
Now back to pondering, it's not just about kicking down cobblestones as mentioned in the song. Maybe there will be moments when you're feelin' groovy(or perhaps there are other feelings). Life isn't a Simon and Garfunkle song as much as we might imagine it to ge or prefer to think it is. It's certainly more than making a morning last. There's that and so much more. At least I think so.
And if you're talking to lampposts as the song lyrics indicate, we may have other issues to discuss. No more doot-in-doo-doo or ba-da-da-da-da-da-da. It's just the way it is. And sometimes that's how it happens. Feelin' groovy. Well, that's a possibility now too.
The photo in this post was taken by Michael Jacobs of an art installation at the Gold Line Light Rail Station at South Pasadena, CA.
