I just love all the thoughts and images that others submit to this amazing weekly theme. I missed the last theme of 'Whimsy', and you all know my photographs and how much whimsy is a central theme.
This weeks teme is: Simplicity and here is my image and a quote to reflect my thoughts on simplicity. In light of the last few weeks, one of the main thoughts running through my mind is the beauty of life and the blessings that abound each day......to live simply and marval in everything that is around us.....a crimson sunset, the moon, the stars, a flower, a ladybug, a butterfly dancing from flower to flower....children splashing in the pool, laughing and giggling.....a hammock.....a large glass of freshly made lemonade....the smell of a peach pie baking....these are a few of the simple things of life I surrounded myself with today. I think I will try to do the same tomorrow
To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter... to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring - these are some of the rewards of the simple life. ~John Burroughs
