Slower may be bet­ter

Central Otago Mirror - - WANAKA FEATURES -

faster is al­ways bet­ter. The Slow phi­los­o­phy is not about do­ing ev­ery­thing at a snail’s pace. It’s about seek­ing to do ev­ery­thing at the right speed. Savour­ing the hours and min­utes rather than just count­ing them. Do­ing ev­ery­thing as well as pos­si­ble, in­stead of as fast as pos­si­ble. It’s about qual­ity over quan­tity in ev­ery­thing from work to food to par­ent­ing’’.

But slow­ness was not em­braced by the driver of a very flash 4WD who may be thought be­cause he had such an ex­pen­sive ve­hi­cle he had the right to main­tain his nor­mal speed through the snow and to shower the rest of us with snow and ice. I know it was un­kind of me but I se­cretly hoped he might lose con­trol and slide off the road. He didn’t. ◗ Ed Tay­lor is gen­eral man­ager of War­birds Over Wanaka and reck­ons Wanaka is the best place in the world to live.
