"Simplicity in all things is the secret of the wilderness and one of its most valuable lessons. It is what we leave behind that is important. I think the matter of simplicity goes further than just food, equipment, and unnecessary gadgets; it goes into the matter of thoughts and objectives as well. When in the wilds, we must not carry our problems with us or the joy is lost." — Sigurd OlsonSometimes I speak of learning from nature, and then I have people question what kinds of things I'm talking about when I say this. Usually I have a hard time coming up with a quick answer that will make sense to the questioner. I think the lesson of simplicity is one of the best answers I could give.
Simplicity. This is one I need to remember. This is one I need to learn better. This one needs to be emblazoned on my heart. Simplicity.
