Thanks to Elizabeth Stilwell for her recent review of New Slow City. Stilwell, writer and founder of The Note Passer and member of the Ethical Writer’s Coalition in New York, lives 85 blocks north of our former 350 square foot micro-apartment in New York.
“Eighty-five blocks north in my own 350-square-foot apartment, New Slow City inspired me to assess this disconnect in my own life. An observer by nature, I am quick to accept the advice to slow down, to think, to take my time, to breathe, to daydream. Armed with this purpose, I’m beginning to see New York with fresh eyes. I’m slowing myself down to lengthen conversations, seek out urban sanctuaries, and experience “natural time”… Regardless of location, readers would do well to examine the slow living principles Powers lays out in New Slow City and, in the process, nurture a more content and meaningful existence.”
