five great things someone else said: volume four

While I may have been discussing the whole Slow Info movement yesterday, and the desire for a bit less googling and a little more time for reflection, I’m not quite as go with the flow as I sometimes wish I could be. (I have a business called TYPE A, after all.)

It’s easier typed out in a blog post than done, but, as Ferris Bueller so wisely once said, Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

Post one of these by your computer and try to find a moment to step outside and smell the roses. xo a.
