    In my new neighborhood kids still play outside

    all day long. I hadn't realized how much I'd missed that in the other places I've lived.

    We are but motes of dust

    when compared to the biosphere- the largest living-learning environment we have ever known. A molecule on a snowflake, landing on the tip of an iceberg, is merely a passing hint as to our place in the Cosmos. Iridescent sunbeams radiating off of morning dew- white puffy clouds...

    He called me outside asking me to close the

    door behind me. I have something to show you, he says. He takes my hand and walks me around the back porch. We sit and look up. The stars are so vibrant tonight. We share a glass of wine and talk about how beautiful the stars are. It was so dark and the only thing I could hear...

    Sometimes it takes sadness to know happiness,

    noise to appreciate silence, and absence, to value presence. maby once whatever it is is gone then you'll appreciate it better.

    There are many simple pleasures in life I truly

    appreciate. For instance a simple cold glass of water, so refreshing. A good meal so satisfying after a long day. An unexpected smile from a stranger, it brightens my day. A nice cool breeze on a hot day, it is soothing. Watching snow fall, just a pretty sight until the...

    I appreciated the way he looked at me.

    I appreciated the way he loved to give me soft kisses, and the way he would hold me when I was upset. I appreciated the way he would remind me of why he loved me. I appreciated the way he helped me with my math homework. I appreciated the way he danced with me all night at prom...

    Me and some friends were hanging out

    and I walked away and laid on a picnic table to look at the stars. They were like what is she doing. I was like do you see how beautiful the sky is ? They seemed so confused.

    I love words. I believe

    that every word contains a certain energy and when it is read, it sparks that energy to draw a picture in my mind depicting the exact meaning of the word. For example, when I read the word "didactic," i can picture someone repeating some instructions to another, I can just feel...

    What can be more beautiful

    than the kiss of a lover, waking up to bird song in the morning, you child excitedly shouting "daddy, daddy, daddy" when you get home from work. There are so many simple beautiful things in life that I am sad for those that go through life blind to them every day.

    I'm so delighted of what I got this morning.

    The driver of my boss handed me a white envelope. When I opened it, a check amounting to 50,000 pesos ($ 1,142). There's a note attached to the check saying." To: MY SISTER & PARTNER, ENJOY SHOPPING... Thank you LORD for the blessing!!

    I think the best moments in life are not

    planned. When I close my eyes, feel the wind play with my hair, and forget about all the worries.. Or when I sit on the rooftop and look at the stars, or the beautiful sunset. It's just so magical. I'm not sure if it counts as simple, but at least it makes me happy.

    Everything is beautiful

    have been allowing life to kick me about a bit

    lately, and finally got sometime to go head out to the woods and camp. after camp was set up I kicked back with a simple meal of meat and fruit, a fine glass of extra sweet mead by the camp fire. the whole world melted away from me and I was back at home in the natural world

    I truly appreciate the simple things in life

    because it sometimes shows how much a person cares for you and how much you care for that person. I believe the simple things come from the heart.

    that really matter. The trees, rivers and lakes, stars, the air because it is God's breath, all the things that aren't man made and really matter.

    I am vacationing at the beach,

    a very familiar place. I come here often with my family. Our daily ritual is to brew a pot of coffee, pour into two clear glass mugs; mine is black, his with a little cream and sugar. We head out the door and make our walk to the beach - not far, a few houses away. I love the...

    Sometimes I really wonder

    if people don't confuse being happy with having fun. I don't know that I'd say I have a fun life, but a lot of the time I'm pretty content, happy even, because I do like appreciating simple things. I think we can take a lot for granted. Health for example. To be in reasonably...

    My love for US sitcoms began with watching

    M*A*S*H, at night, alone in the early 90s. It was a simple story told so beautifully, every episode had a message and the human touch, it always made me feel good as I went to bed after watching it. Scrubs, a totally funny take on doctors & hospitals that wasn't up to it but...
