Living Slow – Pop Culture Updates

The other day, a friend told me about the film called, I AM. It’s a documentary produced by and movie director, Tom Shadyak (Ace Ventura, Patch Adams) with the tried-and-true narrative that in facing death, one discovers how there is much more to life. However, through the process of producing the film, Shadyak shifts the focus of the film to reveal the many ways that we are connected to each other and the earth. While this may not seem like a new idea, I think it is a reaffirmation of the importance of paying attention to the connections between all living things. This is something that [I believe] can only be observed when we have slowed our lives and our minds. I haven’t yet seen the movie, but plan to. Here is the trailer.

The other piece of news is that Free Range Kids author, Lenore Skenazy, will soon be coming to Canadian TV. In true reality TV style, she will be hosting a show where Canadian helicoptor-style parents will have Lenore come into their lives to help them be more free range in their parenting style.

    it a glance regularly.
