is simplicity." Walt Whitman
What does simplicity mean to you? Just like every other concept simplicity means different things to different people. I am finding that it means different things at different stages of my life. Right now, in this minute, simplicity means a quiet day with nowhere to go and nothing to do. It means solitude and peacefulness. It means taking time to paint with my watercolor pencils. It means writing from the heart and breathing from deep within the soul. It means looking out the windows at the trees that are blooming and appreciating the sounds of the rain on the roof. It means a hot cup of tea or a cold glass of water. It means fresh fish served with lemon and vanilla ice cream for dessert. Nothing fancy but perfect for an almost spring Sunday afternoon. What does simplicity look or feel like to you? If you close your eyes for just a minute what do you see? What do you hear? Beginning to visual what we want is one of the first steps we can take towards making it happen. If simplicity is something that you yearn for, what step can you take towards creating a day or a life filled with simple but special moments that fill you with both a sense of peace and a sense of accomplishment? It is amazing how when we take the first tiny step the other tiny steps begin to get easier and easier and then one day what was once a vision has now become reality.
When you share your dreams and talent with the world, magic happens. Let the magic begin!
