i have been feeling that ache for simplicity. that drive for the bare minimum. that call to let go and detox... to rid myself of the extra. i went out to the farm with my grandpa and the kids yesterday, and it was a great nourishment to me because life was visually abundant. and it was all organic, natural, rooted in earth. i don't know to what length i will travel on my journey to sustainability and simplicity. i am going to keep walking though. and do my best to lighten my load. and i remember that i get nurtured when i step into those spaces of re-connecting with what is important to me. i get fed through being WITH nature. i get inspired by being around different cultures. i get livened when i hear music and see stories played out. i feel more awake when i can visit downtown areas and play. and when i can see simplicity and city go hand in hand. there are pockets of places that speak my language. i just need to spend more time in them. resting and singing my songs.
