Slow Down Quotes (1 quote)
Nature offers us a thousand simple pleasuresplays of light and color, fragrance in the air, the suns warmth on skin and muscle, the audible rhythm of lifes stir and pushfor the price of merely paying attention. What joy! But how unwilling or unable many of us are to pay this price in an age when manufactured sources of stimulation and pleasure are everywhere at hand. For me, enjoying natures pleasures takes conscious choice, a choice to slow down to seed time or rock time, to still the clamoring ego, to set aside plans and busyness, and to simply to be present in my body, to offer myself up.
