of us have swallowed the idea that when it comes to food, faster is better"|
Quote: Carl Honore, Author of "In Praise Of Slow"
Victoria .the perfect place for the SLOW wedding of your dreams, a romantic SLOW weekend, or celebrating a milestone of SLOW love. It is the island of choice for romance and charm!
|The unforgettable aroma of a pot roast SLOWLY simmering on a bed of onions surrounded by succulent potatoes, fragrant parsnips, infused with fresh rosemary and a touch of basil what a SLOW tease for the taste buds!!!|
Anyone who has stood in line at a busy supermarket , understands the frustration of a fast paced, busy lifestyle.
|Everything about nature forces us to SLOW down and have patience. Gardening is an instrument of grace that sets us back into the SLOW circles. The smell of freshly turned earth warming in the early morning sun, the SLOW spread of color and the unforgettable scent of Geraniums, Peonies and my favourite Lily of The Valley.|
afternoons, a crackling fire, a cup of hot cocoa
.yes, hot cocoa!!
a SLOW read to escape to
No movie maker can create what our mind can conjure up so is the power of our imagination!!
isnt that an oxymoron??? |
We all need to go SLOW and smell the roses .and what better way then to take a leisurely stroll down the many pathways wrapped around the bay, paddle your way around a sun dappled harbour, a SLOW hike up to the top of the Mt. Douglas Summit or just chillin on your own private balcony.

|There's something between animals and owners that is magical. While children may grow into ornery adolescents, pets don't have mood swings or meltdowns, and they never talk back. They're loyal and lovable; and even if we're irritable, they adore us unconditionally.|

In this age of "FAST", families are taking a back seat to technology. Families are spending less and less time together and more time surfing the web or playing video games. Remember the days before video games? You could set up a Monopoly board and be entertained for hours. Treat your children to a night of board games by digging out an old favorite.
The main goal is to be happy and take the time to do all those things that we all put off until we have time or until we retire!!!
With life expectancy increasing by almost 20 years since 1955, those golden years will be indeed a time to look forward to with great expectatation!!!
