Todays post begins a reflection on comments Dan said in response to Digital Sunshine II (see HERE), ie. that our souls/our spirits travel at walking pace, and the faster we run, the faster technology spirals us out into the ether the greater the disconnect between body and soul, mind and spirit.

Boats, travelling often below walking speed, are a technology that enables re-connection. They start the healing process by allowing catch-up time.

Particularly in the manic forward rush to Christmas when the radio report this morning that it’s Mega or Cyber Monday when we’re spending millions of pounds per minute buying online ¬†those must-have Xmas prezzies, isn’t it good, just for a moment to STOP, to think back, and to connect with a memory or two of stillness and calm?
