Life, living, can be complex. There’s work, family, and that big bucket of everything else. Hectic doesn’t come close to defining the pace of modern life. And yet within this whirlwind it’s often the simple things that bring us the greatest joy — if we could only find them in the clutter of our lives. It may not be necessary to give it all up and live in a cave, but it can sometimes seem like a good idea.
What can you do? Take a moment and think about you, me, and everything else.
