Slow movement: A big trend in 09???

I'm going to put it right out there. I think this is going to be a BIG trend in 09:

The Slow Movement.

The slow movement website explains it best

"The Slow Movement aims to address the issue of 'time poverty' through making connections. We are searching for connection. We want connection to people - ourselves, our family, our community, our friends, to food, to place (where we live), and to life. We want connection to all that it means to live – we want to live a connected life."


  1. The slow movement was a big new thing in 2006, 2007 and 2008.

    Perhaps slow movements take a little time top get going!

  2. Or maybe things are just getting slower!!
