Slower may be better
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.
