This week’s Lens-Artist Photo Challenge: Simplicity
How are we seeing and feeling the meaning of simplicity during these very unusual times?
I believe I have always found joy in simple things.
Some of my favorite things in life…
- Reading a great book at home with the doors open and the birds chattering in the back yard
- An enjoyable meal anywhere outdoors in warm weather
- A drive along the beach (ok, anything around a beach 🌴)
- A great heart warming movie with someone I love
- Organizing my home so everything is easy to access
- Vacations! And although vacations aren’t always simple, I plan ahead so that when we are on vacation, we can enjoy every moment with minimal stress
- And finally I love to walk! On the weekends I walk Saturday morning (and right now I’m also walking Sundays). And, because the gym is closed, I’m walking every evening with my husband. Very simple, very therapeutic!
Therefore, for this post on Simplicity I’m including a few photos from my walks this weekend. I discovered a new wildlife preserve, three miles down the road. It is still being created, but it is beautiful (see a previous post here). Walking in the new area, camera in hand, I discover new beauty every time. A very simple activity that brings me so much joy.
“The consumption society has made us feel that happiness lies in having things, and has failed to teach us the happiness of not having things.”
