A thought that occurred to me yesterday is that one aspect of romance is going slow for the sake of going slow, and savoring whatever we happen to be doing.
The follow-up question was: What keeps me from the ‘romantic’ approach all the time?
Well, often when working on something, it’s to get to the ‘next’ thing.
This it would seem, is a bit short-sighted, because if we can’t fully dive into and enjoy our current topic of study, why would we enjoy a future progression?
The magic is in us, not the subject. Or perhaps there is magic in subject, and through full engagement student and subject dance.
