I shuffled across this tune while walking to work, and BAM! I used to dance to this song, so I certainly listened to it many times. But I’ve never HEARD it like I did yesterday morning. I’ve listened to it over and over and have made Slow Down by India Arie my theme song for the week (day? month? forever?).
“Slow down baby, you’re going too fast…”
“Take some time to clear your space, chaos isn’t good for your health….”
“Sometimes you gotta be still before you get ahead….”
Do yourself a favor – slow down long enough to soak up this amazing poem with her brilliant phrasing, rhythm, and melody.
Does this resonate with you? Anyone want to join me in slowing down?
