Most of us find ourselves living fast-paced lives. Everything needs to happen now, real-time, instantaneously. Emails need to be sent and received now. Food has to be prepared quickly and ingested before it gets cold. The computer needs to compute lightning quick and perform our tasks immediately. Our bosses need this and that done right now. We have to hurry up to pick up the kids. We also have to hurry up before the light turns red. We have to get things done now so we can meet our end faster.

Sometimes we take a breather. We travel and get to see that not everyone’s clock ticks at the same pace. There are those out there who are living on a different beat either by choice or by lack of opportunities.
