"Oh, the times are urgent, let us slow down. Slowing down is losing our way. Losing our way is not a human capacity or human capability. It is the invitations that are now in in the world at large, inviting us to listen deeply, to be keen and to be fresh and to be quick with our heels, to follow the sights and sounds and smells of the world, which is now no longer mute and dumb as modernity would have us believe it is. It's now alive, it's alien and wanting us to do more than just save ourselves. So let us slow down and listen and maybe we might hear something magical."
