Pōturi – Be Slow

posted in: Hei Toki | 0

This is a pounamu that is part of a larger set. The set was made for a childrens book that my wife created. There is one pounamu for each page of the book. The main page for this is called Sand in my toes salt in my nose and you can see all the artwork and pounamu there. The book is available for purchase at rosalindpotter.com, along with prints of the art, all done by our good friend Ginney Deavoll.

This symbol on the toki represents the journey to slowing down. Life is often fast paced, jumping from one thing to another like a zigzag, and it takes time and often conscious effort to break out of that and truly slow down.

“Till we finally reach the most beautiful beach, where I slow my pace, with no need to race.” (Page 12/13)
