My thought for today, and the reason for the name of the blog, is that we all should slow down a little. I have been forced to slow down, but I think it has happened for a reason. I have seen what happens when I slow down. It gives me time to appreciate things, and it also gives me time to look at some of the absurdities of life. In this blog, I will write about things which are important to me, and things which I observe. If the words I write bring about some change in the world, then I will be satisfied. If they get at least one person thinking differently, then I will be happy. If the words bring a smile to your face or gladden your heart, then that is great as well.
