Sky Watch Friday

However mean your life is, meet it and live it: do not shun it and call it hard names. Cultivate poverty like a garden herb, like sage. Do not trouble yourself much to get new things, whether clothes or friends. Things do not change, we change. Sell your clothes and keep your thoughts.
- Henry David Thoreau




As we live and as we are, Simplicity -- with a capital "S" -- is difficult to comprehend nowadays. We are no longer truly simple. We no longer live in simple terms or places. Life is a complex struggle now. It is now valiant to be simple: a courageous thing to even want to be simple. It is a spiritual thing to comprehend what simplicity means.
- Frank Lloyd Wright



   How about you? How simple your life is? Or do you try to live a simpler life? What exactly is simple life?
