The Great Tragedy of Speed

 Though I can agree with some of the ill effects of speed mentioned by David White, I feel his is a far too gloomy and negative assessment of speed. There are situations were speed is essential. A more balanced assessment would have been better. Perhaps Mr. White and I define speed differently.:)

Taking a few bursts of speed every now and then is OK, the problem is when people start living permanently in high speed and can't decelerate anymore. I think this is what David Whyte was talking about =)

i can see that he is talking about those times when we are so busy that anything which slows us down does not fit in. We dont smile, cant care, we are just running fast to achieve God knows what! We don't see to have patience and listening and start losing on loving relations. We may realize that we missed a lot when we stop by due to some failure or problem and see that we actually did not live at all.

 Live and Love today, Special and Chosen one.  Start today.  With or without speed, start today . . . always remembering in the story of "The Tortoise and the Hare" who won the race!  (Not that winning matters)  No matter how insignificant our lives "feel", at times, the least is considered the best in/to the only Eyes that really matter!
In all things, love,
To all you meet, love
love to someone!
