Sloww Sunday Newsletter 010 (March 29, 2020) — Ephemeral Art, Seeking Truth, the Mysterious, & More
Sloww Sunday is a new email newsletter sharing inspiration to awaken the art of living.
In a modern world focused on the trendy, here’s your weekly dose of the timeless.
I’m continuing to wish all the best for you and your loved ones during this time.
At this point, there is an overwhelming amount of information out there. Beyond the mainstream media and sea of social media opinions, there’s some useful (mathematical) content rising above the rest. These two videos are worth checking out:
How To Tell If We’re Beating COVID-19 (MinutePhysics on YouTube | 7 mins)
Simulating an Epidemic (3Blue1Brown on YouTube | 23 mins)
I’ve never heard of anybody who awakens in their comfort zone.— Eckhart Tolle

2 // Documentary I’m Watching
Rivers and Tides: Working with Time (Amazon | 90 mins)
This documentary soothes the soul. Andy Goldsworthy’s transient art is natural yet otherworldly at the same time. He creates “ephemeral sculptures” using materials he finds in nature: wood, stone, leaves, flowers, and ice. While others may try to make works of art that last for eternity, some of his original pieces don’t last longer than a couple hours. Thanks to Tim Ferriss for the recommendation.
I am the next layer upon those things that have happened already.— Andy Goldsworthy
Here’s a preview:
3 // Podcast I’m Listening To
Groups Search for Consensus, Individuals Search for Truth (Nav.al | 2 mins)
While I prefer long-form when it comes to written content (books), I’m realizing that I’m now gravitating toward short-form when it comes to audio (podcasts). Instead of two hours, this one is two minutes of the most insight-dense content I’ve heard lately.
Truth-seeking is a hard business. You essentially have to understand, with deep conviction, things that you’ve been programmed to misunderstand.— Naval Ravikant
- 15 Timeless Thoughts from Naval Ravikant + 50 Naval Quotes on Peace, Happiness, the Meaning of Life, & More
4 // Book Excerpt I’m Reading
Einstein’s perspective is on pages 3-5 of this PDF. His worldview is jam-packed with wisdom.
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.— Albert Einstein
5 // Quote & Question I’m Contemplating
Half an hour’s meditation each day is essential, except when you are busy. Then a full hour is needed.— Francis de Sales
Question: Busyness is blinding. Slow down to see. How are you doing with busyness right now? Don’t forget, a busy life isn’t the same as a full life.
