I am Slow Food

The Slow Food movement is designed to counter fast food. The emphasis is on taking your time, taking care, and savoring the cooking and the taste of the dish.

I feel like I am the Slow Food of entertainment. I look at things like Tik Tok, Instagram Reels, and the like, and while I get it, it’s just not me. I like to consider what I write, edit what I post. I like to reminisce about the past, ponder ideas, take my time.

What is popular is immediacy, momentary distraction, disposable fun. I’m not judging it; I am often a consumer of it. I’m just realizing it’s not me.

Can it be? Can I balance my long-distance pace with a sprinter’s burst? Should I?

I’m probably going to try. I have a desire to be noticed, to be hot, to go viral. But I know it’s going to take a lot of learning to become something I am not.
