To find the universal elements enough;
to find the air and the water exhilarating;
to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter;
to be thrilled by the stars at night;
to be elated over a bird’s nest or a wildflower in spring —
these are some of the rewards of the simple life.
~ John Burroughs
I really like the writing. Being elated to find a bird's nest. I am playing your music to my sixth grade class right now who are suppose to be writing for 20 minutes.
A lovely poem from Burroughs, and I've always had the feeling that my own family never "got it" this way... but I have a dear friend who does, and that's enough.
So true Jo.
Simple yet elegant ! Lovely ! Have a good day !
Great quote by Burroughs. I always have believed in the beauty of simple things.
I love those things toooo
I want to walk into that picture, really, I do.
We shall soon have the bluebells here too. They are so late this year, but they are coming...
There are days when that just rings so true , when you are able to be in those moments so completely and that is indeed so very exhilarating and fullfilling .
