Exhilarating, Luxurious, and Urgent

"In an age of acceleration, nothing can be more exhilarating than going slow. And in an age of distraction, nothing is so luxurious as paying attention. And in an age of constant movement, nothing is so urgent as sitting still."

~ Pico Iyer, from "The Art of Stillness," TED, August 2014
