20130402-075745.jpg I find it so interesting how something, an experience or in this case an object, can instantly bring a word to mind. Simplicity. These potted sweet English peas were given to us on Sunday by our friend Catherine as we were leaving Easter brunch. I have been looking at them with a happy heart each time I walk past them sitting on the kitchen counter. The definition for simplicity says the word can be used to imply beauty, purity, or clarity. So often the most beautiful things are the simplest–a single parrot tulip in a drinking glass, a perfectly roasted chicken breast just as it has been plated, a stack of books ever so neatly placed on a side table. Another part of the definition for simplicity is quality of being. The beauty of just being. Simplicity of beauty is swirling all around us. We just have to keep our eyes & mind open to it and we will be astonished by how much it fills our day.
