The NYTimes recently featured a short documentary about “Slomo“, a former neurologist turned lover of life and all things roller skating. It’s always fascinating to watch and learn about how and why people like Dr John Kitchin decide to make such radical departures from their “normal lives”. What’s better, after learning why and how, one is left with the immense feeling that their actions are the only rational ones. It’s easy to write such changes off as just another story about a midlife crisis gone extreme. But I like to think about it as being a logical rejection of society’s materialistic and hollow expectations.
What will it take for you to find your inner “Slomo”? Would you have the courage to follow it if you did?
