|My view, morning coffee in hand|
I’ve always loved the outdoors and since I was a child dreamt of days spent in a log cabin far removed from life’s endless distractions. It was much to my surprise when I learned that I would be doing just that over the recent holiday season.
My boyfriend planned a getaway where we spent three days living and reveling in simplicity. Or as I reflected, in “honest living”. What is that, you ask? I see it as living focused on the bare essentials – keeping warm, cooking meals - and enjoying simple pleasures like board games, movies and music.
My only disappointment is that it passed all too quickly. You know you’re in good company when time flies doing not much at all. And I look forward to the next time when keeping the fire stoked will be one less item on the "agenda".
When was the last time you spent living simply? What did you do? How did you feel?
