Rewards of the Simple Life



"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

Oh, I agree! I was just walking this morning and thinking, really, the flowers and the birds are enough.
