Keeping It Simple

I suppose as I get older I streamline my life year by year. I consciously try to simplify and distill everything around me so I can see clearly, focus on the moment, and most importantly reflect upon joy. The joy of having a family, friends, and feeling a closeness to everything around me. Contentment is very very powerful. It is uncluttered and allows me to stand outside of myself and observe. Seeing simple creates space, pause, and ultimately fosters concentration. I have busy hands, they never stop moving. Yes...keeping it simple is a very good thing.
