slowing down

I bake at a locally owned bakery within walking distance from my apartment.  Everything is made from scratch and to order.  As a consequence, lunch takes a bit longer than say at a chain restaurant.  A slow wait could definitely be a trade-off in our pause-adverse culture.

I am definitely guilty at getting frustrated when a service takes longer than I expected.  But, what if we used the waiting time as meditation or face to face socialization with people that are also waiting and the staff, especially when a slower wait rewards a better product.

It is all about the people, after all.
