my view of the natural world

A simple life

One way to achieve a simple life, is to appreciate simple pleasures.  I gained a great deal of pleasure from being able to photograph the sunrise this morning.  It wasn’t spectacular.  That wasn’t important.  I was there to see it. That is what mattered.

There is much to commend a simple life.  The Simplicity Institute  is a starting point. SimpleSunflower is about simple living made simple, and there’s The Simpler Way.  There’s simply no excuse for not living more simply!

I hope you simply enjoy this morning’s sunrise :-)

  4. This IS a beautiful sunrise. Look at the layer of curious cloud formations and the way the light is diffused upward towards the heavens above them. The silhouettes of just a few trees adds to the drama. This is a spectacular sunrise in its own respect! And you have it to share with the rest of the world! Thank you!

      Thank you for your response Peggy :-) I’m not sure if I can express this clearly, but sometimes I like people to make their own minds up, to decide for themselves. Beauty can be a subjective definition. I see a fallen leaf, and think it beautiful, but not all see it the same. You have a most interesting blog – I wish I could have an extra day in the week to view all the blogs I find interesting :-)

    The Simplicity Institute link has so much info it’s not possible to digest it all in one sitting.
    Thank you for taking the time and effort to bring us a sunrise and some rays of sunshine into our lives. :)

      I appreciate Circum, you taking the interest to look at the link, but of course, do not wish for you to get indigestion!
      It is always a pleasure to share a sunrise with others, especially those who are missing the sun. :-)
