Slow Barometer

Bernadette Noll at brought up a terrific point. Do you have a slow barometer to gauge whether your life feels managable or not? Without really knowing it, I have one, too. Typically during the week, I snaildon’t schedule more than two appointments a day outside of my regular routine. With the kids’ schedules and extracurricular events, more than two activities a day starts to feel hectic.

Do you have a slow barometer, too?

    Nice point. I definitely use the idea of slow living to limit my social engagements and work commitments. The signal for me is whether or not I have time to do any writing during the week. If I haven’t, I’m going too fast!

      Thanks so much for your insights, Jeremy. I’m intrigued by The Age of Stupid, the new movie coming out in the UK. Do keep me informed. I’d love to see it come to a theater in Munich.
