not two dozen
not four kinds for different wines
not one kind for water
there she goes again!
touting that foolish fetish for having next to nothing . . .
and i DO KNOW
that if you have a large family . . .
or you entertain a lot . . .
three glasses is ridiculous.
it’s the concept behind the three glasses.
i must have a terribly cluttered mind.
because i find rest in ultimate simplicity in my surroundings.
i am working on the inner simplicity as well.
it is a much harder job.
how the one comes as natural to me as breathing
and the other
i have to think about
and be mindful of
to keep it calm
to be blunt . . .
i TALK TOO MUCH.
i THINK TOO MUCH.
so . . .
while i work on that . . .
sharing images here that appeal to me.
perhaps in your busy life
they will bring you a cooling breath of
the cooling fresh breath of air
simplicity old bean!
even if you’re a happy ‘thrifter’
and you simply (pun intended hahaha) can’t
see yourself with LESS STUFF!
well . . .
when or if it ever becomes a little overwhelming
you’re welcome to visit this post
and enjoy these images that i cherish
of my beloved
here’s for you old bean!
these are super! really DO feel cool on your nose.
and are wonderful on a clean clear simple countertop.
here am i.
these are sheets i think.
but the point is . . .
i could live there. i would have three little dresses.
i would wash them and hang them on this line.
sorry ! ! !
simply couldn’t resist another picture of this crystal water
and glorious clean and simple beach.
we’ll move on now.
old. and new. together.
and because it’s not covered with STUFF
its beautiful bones show.
life need not be fancy.
life need never “match”
life is good.
i love stones.
i always have.
they . . .
like trees . . .
speak to me.
what would the world do for entertainment
if it weren’t out there BUYING more STUFF ???
well . . .
there are always dog noses to kiss.
and kindles and books to read.
and downton abbey to watch. or doc martin.
or the celtic thunder to swoon over.
or fine wine to imbibe.
or even cheap wine to imbibe. LOL.
and IF you’re LUCKY enough . . .
like some ahem . . . captain pirates i know . . .
you can walk someplace like HERE . . .
well. can’t be the keys. no mountains in the keys.
but he is lucky.
and you do get the idea.
sadly my walking is done there only in my mind!
one last thought on
you know what old bean . . .
i’ll leave you now.
and go back to allowing
my inner life to become more
i know the marine would love it
if i were to simplify
that i TALK TOO MUCH!
i think this long post is proof of that.
i love you old bean.
you are special to me.
you keep dropping by here.
and it’s appreciated.
