The Gift of Simpliciy


'Tis the gift to be simple,
'tis the gift to be free,
'tis the gift to come down
where we ought to be,
and when we find ourselves in the place just right,
'twill be in the valley of love and delight.
When true simplicity is gained
to bow and to bend we shan't be ashamed,
to turn, turn, will be our delight
till by turning, turning we come round right. 
- Old Shaker Hymn 

The country is covered in snow and leaving a landscape dotted with simplicity. I love how the barren winter covers the earth with a quietness, an emptiness waiting to be filled with new life in a few months. Today I reflect on letting go and waiting to be filled. 

True simplicity at its best.
