I prefer to go slow


Over many years, a woman in the DC area has accumulated five carts to store her belongings. Rather than pushing one and pulling one, or attaching them together, she pushes one down a block and leaves it at the corner, then walks back a block to retrieve another and pushes it to join the forwardmost cart. She repeats this process until all five carts sit at the same corner, then she starts again.


She moves about the city this way, always with a serene, detached demeanor, never upset or interacting with anyone else.


A young professional passes her and asks, “I’m walking this way anyway, I could push one of your carts alongside you to save you a trip?” She gently declines the offer.
