Going slow at the New York Public Library
October 30, 2009
Last night’s event at the mid-Manhattan branch of the New York Public Library was an incredibly humbling experience. People from China, the Ukraine, France, Puerto Rico, Latin America and North America assembled to talk about time abundance. Since several audience members had heard my speech the week prior at the National Arts Club of New York, I varied some of it to make it interesting. Eighty people showed up. I was astounded at the level of interest and the yearning for permission to slow down in this 24/7 world of ours. Young and old, foreigners and citizens gathered together in the most extraordinary way.
This week has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. May we all embrace the slow and in doing so realize how connected we truly are.
