Can you believe it’s December already? The year seems to have flown by, so in an attempt to make time slow down a little, here’s a celebration of all things unhurried and plodding. Like these cows at Coral Pink Sand Dunes who were in no rush to get out of our way…
…or this girl in Boston who moved so slowly you wouldn’t even notice it.
Passenger trains in the US make my slow list because I’ve experienced the greatness of their lateness first hand. They don’t own the tracks they travel on, so usually end up having to give way to money-making freight trains.
Slower moving still, this sunken boat near Athy in Ireland.
This one is a total cheat, it’s sloe berries, but they sound slow, don’t they? Anyway, it takes a long time for them to reach their pickable prime, lore has it you have to wait until after the first frost to pick them, so I suppose you could say they are slow to ripen.

A man’s work is nothing but this slow trek to rediscover, through the detours of art, those two or three great and simple images in whose presence his heart first opened. – Albert Camus
Trees that are slow to grow bear the best fruit. – Moliere
