A friend kindly bought this road-sign at the local Tip Shop. He had thought it would be useful to put up along our dirt road as we’d a few people  hooning up and down, seemingly oblivious to the number of young children and animals about.

When I saw it I thought it symbolised for me perfectly the need I felt to slow down… sometimes I have felt like I’m travelling at 100km/h – trying to fit too much into too little time – and it became clear to me that for the benefit of us all I needed to make choices that reduced my speed (a pace of grace!). So… the sign was hung in the hall outside my bedroom, and I have endeavoured to take a moment to reflect on its relevance as I head towards the shower each morning (no more 50 metre dash!).
