the speed of cause


“After all, a life without a cause is a life without effect.”*

“If you want to life life free, take your time, go slowly.”**

‘Today, our machine dream is to be never alone but always in control.  This can’t happen when one if face-to-face with a person.  But it can be accomplished with a robot or … by slipping through the portals of a digital life.’^

I am learning to slow down … to be here.

I am learning there is nothing more important than to bring what I can, here, now, to you.

In such a fast world, it is not easy, and too easy to live without a cause.
