Slow Cooking Monday

cookerThere are people who are quick with ideas – maybe we could call them the Microwaves, since they can cook their ideas in a flash – and then there are folks who need time, maybe LOTS of time, to cook on an idea. When an idea is challenging I can be a slow-cooker.

I don’t have much to offer you today.  I’m cooking on something complex AND I have a bunch of promised work that must get done today.

Have you ever just had to stew on an idea for a while?

  1. I have been criticised for being an alleged “slow eater”. Hearing about slow cookers makes me hungry, I think the world needs more of both–indeed there is also a “slow food” movement. Bravo the wave of the future is slow. Now the world is moving at my deep thinker pace. Shalom.
