Fast food, fast fashion, fast everything. We have so much free time now. What do we use that time for, though? Do we use it to live life meaningfully, or do we stuff it full of other tasks? Why do things have to be fast all the time? Just last week I got so frustrated over having to wait an additional minute for the traffic barrier to be raised. Maybe we should explore our heritage of slowness.
An expanded musing here: "What am I running at breakneck speed for?"
