The times are urgent; let us slow down. Slowing down is losing our way—not a human capacity or human capability. It is the invitations that are now in the world-at-large, inviting us to listen deeply, to be keen, to be fresh, to be quick with our heels, to follow the sights and sounds and smells of the world.

We're dealing with something that is, in my calculations, fundamentally incalculable. It is unframeable. It is something that calls for a shapeshift, not for a resolution or solutions, or technological or techno-bureaucratic deletions, or funding… It is an invitation to stop in our tracks and feel—like failure is the gift that we are looking for right now.

Slowing down is not a function of privilege. It's a function of intimacy with a world that is agentially alive; it's crossroads dynamic.
