Okay, I get all of the progressions here except the third one which looks
like a guy being attacked by zombies, then stays in hospital where he had
a sex change operation and chats with a nurse?
I wonder how magical our lives would be if we all gave more attention, devotion and patience to everything we do? I imagine our family meals would be prepared more carefully and our conversations would be more meaningful. I imagine fewer automobile accidents. Fewer accidents of all types, really.
Life wouldn't necessarily need to slow down. In fact, when you give something all your attention, time seems to fly. "Haste makes waste" and waste takes time to clear away, dampening spirits in the process. I see lives filled with more joy when people consciously choose devotion, patience and attention over selfishness and haste.
Yesterday we were shopping at Costco and I was talking about how to cook a certain tasty sample with one of the food demonstrators. She said it just took two minutes to heat up in the microwave. I told her we didn't have a microwave which shocked her. I think reheated food tastes better when it's cooked more slowly, and taking the extra time is worth it to me.
It's also worth it to me to have conversations like that with people...perhaps I won't change her mind about using the microwave, but it may be nice for her to see that it's not a neccessity for everyone. And that someone slowed down enough to not just grab a sample and go, but to spend time to talk, to pay attention.
Now I'm going to research recipes so I can make a home cooked version of that processed food sample I enjoyed so much...
