Kute Blackson Talks About the Power of Going S L O W L Y

I have seen Kute Blackson twice. Both times he was mesmerizing, powerful, engaging, and made you feel like you could turn not only your life -but the entire world — around. And guess what you can– you just have to know it down deep in your gut and pull it up and DO IT!

Here’s Kute Blackson on video talking about the import of Going Slowly.

Here’s why this is important/meaningful to me.

1) I am like Kute. Put me behind the wheel of my car and turn me loose on the freeway (or PCH) and I am suddenly an entirely different person. Things that bug me– are left behind. Either the CD in the car is cranking high or I am channel surfing to find a couple of perfect songs (Pink, Blow Me One Last Kiss; anything from Muse, and Alex Clare’s Just Too Close to Love You, along with anything from Jay Nash, Will Dailey and a few others)

2) If it’s sunny, I revel in it. If it’s overcast, I am looking at the shades of gray and black i the sky finding meaning as well as shadows

3) I know where I am going and the happiness of the journey and arrival is just bursting forth long before I arrive.

4) I do manage to people (or car) watch while I am driving.

5) I do know that zone that Kute talks about and while I haven’t been over 100 mph, I have gone pretty darn fast and know that I have to back off.

6) The process of the journey is what makes the entire journey/drive/ride relevant. It gives me the space to see my surroundings, the changes, and me in an entirely different context.

Relish in that drive, relish in doing things slowly– whether it’s driving, eating a messy burger or sipping on your favorite glass of -fill in the blank with brew, tea, wine, cocktail. Stretch it out to make it last so much longer to savor that moment. Because life is meant to be lived, not just rushed through like a quick run through a drive-through.

But what I think doesn’t matter here. What’s important is what you take away from this video. What’s the meaning for you? What does it reveal to you?
