In praise of slowness (video)

Disney Institute Keynote Speaker
Is it possible to make being uncomfortable your comfort zone?

 

The truth hurts and the truth can set you free.

How often do you drive the speed limit?

Seriously.

How often?

This question is really asking, “How often do you break the law?”

This TED Talk is much deeper and highly recommended.

But alas, you’re too busy.

Hurry on your way, i get it (and eventually, speed gets us).

We are a product of what we consume

First photo on the day yesterday.

 

Sanibel sunrise
Added a panorama version for good measure.

 

We are a product of what we consume.

Day in and day out.

It adds up.

Didn’t use the desk to write. At all.

We backed in to Castaway Cay’s dock, allowing our stateroom to face the action.

Zooming in.

More zooming.

Zoom like you mean it.

Mentally disembarking from Port Canaveral 9:00am this morning.

In two days it’s Christmas.

In two hours it’s time to disembark the Disney Fantasy.

We’ll be home before 11am today.

But may i just say what an incredible place Disney’s Castaway Cay is?

Wow.

Yesterday was a huge wow.

Mentally at Disney’s Castaway Cay 8:30am – 4:45pm

Disney Cruise
Yesterday at sea.

 

Disney Cruise
Last night’s entertainment at the Walt Disney Theater.

 

Disney Cruise
Yesterday morning’s first look from the bow of the ship.

 

Disney Cruise
Same, with more sky.

 

Disney Cruise
One Deck up to get a cup of hot water.

 

How exciting today that we are mentally at Disney’s Castaway Cay 8:30am – 4:45pm.

While we were at Sea the past two days and today’s photos are from yesterday, this is being written midmorning – from Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay.

Seriously.

Surrounded by palm trees and a carpet of white sand.

Life is good.

Mentally at Sea all day again, continuing NE to Disney Island

Disney Cruise
What? First photo from yesterday. New addition to Disney’s Hall of Presidents.

 

Disney Cruise
Second pic from yesterday.

 

Disney Cruise
As the morning grew brighter…

 

Disney Cruise
And brighter…notice the sunrise was to the rear of the ship versus the front.

 

Mentally at Sea all day again, continuing NE to Disney Island.

Yesterday morning’s routine was different on the Disney Fantasy.

It was northing like the home routine behind Disney’s Magic Kingdom.

No brainer, right?

How could it not be different?

And, the morning change is driven by the night before.

Our dinner seating is 8:15pm.

Dinner concludes near 10pm.

Normally asleep by 9pm.

And so it goes.
