Prospero Año Nuevo!
The caracol (a snail) is a Zapatista symbol for free government entities (juntas). It's a link between the present and the Mayan past. And it's a reminder of a time when the world moved much more slowly. When there was time for thinking and time for thoughts. When there was less rushing. When there was deliberation.
And so the caracol is my wish to you for 2008. May all of your minutes have 60 seconds. May there be time to reflect. May there be time to step off the treadmill. May there be a pause. May there be time for you. And may time gift you with abundant delight, joy, happiness, satisfaction, peace, comfort, safety and health.
Y prospero año nuevo!
