"In a western culture that’s obsessed with fast time, quick turnarounds and immediate results, can you and I refuse? Can we slow down? I’d like to commit to a slower timeline with you that is rooted in the sustainable and care-centered. I’d like to be next to you during the hard shit and the moments I will inevitably mess up and you will too. I’d like to take more time to listen rather than immediately react. I’d like us both to tune into our bodies and feelings, to find how we are best personally suited to be time benders, and show up to that practice with the consistency that a well-tended garden asks for."
