    Clarity In Still Water

    Dusk approaches... the frogs engage in their evening chorus, the ibis forage at the water's edge. A crimson sun retreats behind the mountains, the wind a gentle whisper through the silhouettes of numerous mighty trees. The laughter of the kookaburra sounds the days end.Eventually...

    Keeping It Simple

    I'm among those who strongly believe that the small things in life matter the most; for example, watching the night sky.

    It Really Is The Little Things

    It seems to me that more 'conveniences' we invent to make our lives proceed more smoothly, the more complicated things become. Our lives have become overwhelmed with Immediacy. As workers we race to our places of employment, so drawn to the 'need' to be everywhere we 'need' to be...

    Sitting on the porch in a rocking chair watching the day go by, a smile, a hug, a cuddle, keeping the fireplace glowing, cup of coffee in the morning, reading a good book, spending time with good friends, stopping to have a chat with someone you have never met nor will...

    I Used to Have a Goldfish...

    I used to have a goldfish when I was a kid, one of those kinds you get at the carnival.  He lasted for about a month before he died.  When he started just lingering at the bottom of the bowl I would stick his food on the bottom of a stick and put it down there for him...

    Because Being Happy Is Simple

    No classes for 3 days since yesterday. I'm glad about it. I can catch up the things I used to do during breaks or even summer. Read a book, listen to good old songs and find myself catching some horror movies to watch. So since, today is Saturday and I'm looking for something to...

    The Best

    The simple pleasures in life are the best. Enjoying company of a close friend, watching the animals outside. Hot chocolate in winter. Camping in the woods alone, cooking over the fire. Going for a walk at night in the fall.

    Low Maintenance

    Though people usually just think of me as simple.  I want a lot of things, but don't need to be rich, famous, or rule the world. Coffee, walking in the rain, playing, cooking, reading, a surprise e-mail, and the list goes on ad nauseum.  Sometimes it's mistaken for...

    One simple pleasure I enjoy is having neat

    organized space with little obstacles. Because I currently live in an apartment away from home and for some reason brought tons of junk I'll never need, do you think it's a good idea to store all my things I don't need into a giant plastic bin and store it in my parents attic?

    So Many

    I Smile When I Get Caught...

    ... looking at a woman I find attractive. I love when at that moment of being caught to not turn away but to smile innocently, after all in my mind I just gave her a complement. & if she returns the smile? Ahhhhh that, is, such a simple pleasure

    It doesn't take much to bring a smile on my face. Kind words, nice gestures, a day just chatting with family, or watching network television with family. Even a smile on a baby's face is enough to warm me for a long while. And the silly antics of my kittens and cats. :-) I also...
