i feel this way today

that is my problem with life, i rush through it, like i'm being chased. even things whose whole point is slowness, like drinking relaxing tea. when I drink relaxing tea i suck it down as if i'm in a contest for who can drink relaxing tea the quickest.

-miranda july
i want to live in miranda's world. everything she writes breaks my heart with its honesty.

Beautiful. I haven't heard of Miranda July--totally just Googled her--but if you (a great writer) thinks that she's a great writer, then I'm going to have to learn more.

I'm the same...but I must say January has been a bit better and I'm hoping that I can make 'slowing down' a habit :)
