Pierre Sansot was a French anthropologist and sociologist. He was a thinker of cities, little things of daily life, a thinker of slowness, conversation and walks…
One of his book is called : “Du bon usage de la lenteur”, about good use of slowness.
I just extracted the structure for you. Here it is. I realized I wrote something before, in this blog, about each one…
- To saunter : taking time, let yourself be led by your own steps, a landscape…
- To listen
- To be bored : to accept and appreciate the unimportance of daily life
- To dream : to get a twilight but brisk and sensitive conscience
- To wait : for the horizon becomes wider
- Inner province : love what is withered, anachronic
- To write : to slowly see blossom a truth
- Wine : as a school for wisdom
- Moderato Cantabile : measure, moderation
I won’t develop, it’s in the book. You could buy it and learn some French from it!
But what we see in this list is a “field”. It’s a map for a state of mind which doesn’t always play the game…
What do you think? How does that sound?
- La Dérive is the French “drift”
- Listeners & Askers
- Know How to Wait : indecision is a decision
- Uncontrol the Controllable – The Chardonnay Effect
