Treasures All Around Us

Nov. 13, 2022

About ten years ago I watched a film called The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.  It is incredibly slow-moving, achingly slow. So slow that I almost turned it off after the first half-hour.

But as I became accustomed to the slow pace, something started to change. Not the film, I don’t think.  Something in me changed.


I started to notice all the things that are easy to miss at the speed I usually operate.  I became aware of just how much there is to see and notice and appreciate, when I’m willing to slow down and be with the moment in front of me.  And a film that I almost cut short blossomed into one that I remember dearly a decade later.

There are treasures all around us.  The question is, what will it take for us to see them?
