Childhood means simplicity. Look at the world with the child’s eye — it is very beautiful.
~ Kailash Satyarthi
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
~ Leonardo da Vinci
Leave it to me to make simplicity complicated. I took several photos this morning in my attempt to capture simplicity, but it seemed to me that even the simple can be complex. The shell pictured above has patterns and textures, different shades of white and color.
Even a single, simple segment of a clementine has a lot of detail to it when you move in for a closer look. However, it does meet the definition of simplicity in that it is plain and natural.
Ultimately, as the start and main theme of this post, I decided on an image of Little Wookie practicing wonder by exploring and making a simple game out of his feet. To me, wonder expresses simplicity better than anything else I can think of. Wonder pares things down to the basics in life, something a small child knows how to do almost perfectly.
Thank you so much for visiting today. This post is in response to Susannah Conway’s April Love 2018 prompt for today: Simplicity.
A few of the 10,000 reasons to be happy: 606) Finding simplicity in what appears to be complicated. 607) Challenging myself to try something a little different. 608) The sound of the laughing gulls in the morning. 609) The little heater I have under my desk. It keeps me warm on chilly days like today. 610) Cadbury Caramel Eggs. The Cadbury Creme Eggs are good, too, but caramel is one of my all-time favorite flavors. Thank you, Easter Bunny, for leaving some for us to enjoy.
