Bonsai treeHappy National Simplicity Day (for yesterday)!

Simplicity is at the heart of beauty, function and reason.  It has been argued by many thinkers from Epicurus to Henry David Thoreau, who reflected on the joys of simple living in his book “Walden”.

National Simplicity Day is observed in America every 12th July in Thoreau’s honour.  Click or tap here to read more.

“In proportion as he simplifies his life, the laws of the universe will appear less complex, and solitude will not be solitude, nor poverty poverty, nor weakness weakness.”

~Henry David Thoreau
