The Slow and the Rich

by Mark Chmiel

“I want to do things like that that seem to me to be about creating a space where people can kick back, eat, laugh, tell stories, be comfortable, and by extension send that vibration across the world. Because really, what’s important is not so much the frenzied activity that we all have been in–if we’re not still in it– but the slowness of the daily and the richness of the very ordinary stuff.
–Alice Walker
