This Weekend~unHurry~Can you Do It?

“Hurry rushes toward the destination and fails to enjoy the journey” ~Alan Fadling in his book An Unhurried Life*

A sudden winter ice storm caused me to do it today as the roads became slick with frozen reminders that we are not in charge.

Perhaps the early sunset will cause you to do it.

Perhaps a cold, or other wintertime illness with cause you to do it.

Or a traffic jam,a long line,

Or a brief encounter with beauty:

sunset

Whether or not it is intentional or unintentional, might you take time to take your time this weekend?

Might you unHurry?

Pause

Savor

There will be time to jump on the conveyor belt of busy…

But, perhaps, this weekend, especially today when many flags will fly at half-staff,

it is a good time to engage in the unHurry, in the uneventfully vital.

Sit and watch/Stand and see/kneel and pray/

unHurry for a respite.

I first learned about Fadling’s book from this post at Domestic Serenity
