Totoro-paced blogging

Posting may be slow-paced in the near term. Speaking of which, I was struck, watching the 1988 Japanese animated film My Neighbor Totoro the other night, at how slow its pacing was, seemingly reflecting life in rural Japan of a few decades further back. This morning I read that the film's maker, Ghibli Studios, is looking for a breakthrough into the U.S. market; probably slow pacing has been part of their problem, though it has its virtues as a corrective in these days of compulsive tweeting and other limited-attention-span hyperactivity.
