On slowing down

Tod at It Takes a Church has been posting his thoughts on slowing down. What we need, Tod says, is time to bask:
When we bask, we adore. Taking in the taste and smells, feeling the wind and the sunlight, noticing the smiling faces and sad eyes of others. Taking the time for a lingering hug of a loved one, to hear a good joke, to look at the sunset. We sit and be.
The best book I've read on being, albeit not necessarily from a Christian perspective, is Eric Fromm's To Have or to Be.
