Thought for the Day

There is a secret bond between slowness and memory,
between speed and forgetting.

Haven't read Kunera in years -- so it's lovely to become reacquainted through you!

and, thanks for your comment over at Diane's place. I followed the trail to Dawn Potter's blog and am entranced!

I liked this quote from his book:

"They are gazing at God's windows."

If there is a bond between slowness and remembering, then there's hope for me!
