“One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple.” ― Jack Kerouac

Do you strive for a simple life? How? Why? And does it involve throwing pots?

  1. Yes yes yes! I was just thinking about this the other day. My life is so simple now – working from home with my husband, making our home in a small quiet town. I work with very professionally ambitious (and relatively young) clients, so that’s when I feel the contrast the most. But I’ve been there done that, and I have different priorities now as well as a different definition of happiness and success.

    Beautiful pictures, as always!

  2. Sometimes I do yearn for a simple life, but then I know in my heart that my neurotic brain would just find a way to complicate it anyways.

  3. I think unscheduling is a biggie for us–having fewer planned, repeating, and more institutional activities and more spontaneous, relational, and open-ended ones. IE fewer swim lessons, more afternoons at a friend’s house.

  4. Simple, yes. I strive for that.

  5. I love the last shot…and your quote is a great one. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Simple…I so strive for simples. And when you get a second, seriously tell me where you learned your photography skills!!! 🙂 BTW, my son wants to know how say “Hello” in romanian. 😉

    • Ha! There are lots and lots of ways to say hello. Some people say “szervusz” (sair-vooze), some people say “ciao” (like in Italian), and others say “buna” (rhymes with luna). Just today I was asking myself how many times it will take me to stop saying “buna” and start saying “hi” once we get back to the States!

      As for the photography (thank you!), it’s been a hobby of mine since high school. So you could say I’ve had lots and lots of practice. I took a continuing education class back in the darkroom days, and I’ve done some online tutorials. (This one is my favorite.) Mostly, I just play around in Manual mode until I get something I like. Gotta love digital … take 100, keep 10!

  7. I’m loving your Simplicity interpretations – the simple life. Great pictures!

  8. Wonderful captures (as always)! Love that first one. It really seems so simple to me.

  9. My simple life does not include throwing pots. Some days my simple country life doesn’t seem simple at all. I must say I just love the shot with the candles.

  10. These are beautiful responses to ‘Simplicity,. I like the top shot and the candles best. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

  11. Inside I strive for simplicity. But sometimes my outsides don’t always match my insides. I am working on it. Thanks for this reminder.

  12. […] two short hours, we would have the last souvenir from our fantastic, sometimes frustrating, occasionally frantic year in […]
