  1. Excellent presentation! Our society needs to cherish the slower, more rewarding moments and stop forcing us to get through them in order to get to the next thing that we need to go through.

  2. great video.

    oh and btw. it pains me to type this comment. for as soon as i do, it will make it completel unable for me to click the back button (in firefox) and go to the page i was supposed to be on.

    just thought you might want to know. its annoying when you are a number of pages in and there isn’t really anyway to get back.
