On Living Small and Simply

Mt. Rainier, Washington State

"To be without some of the things you want is an indispensable part of happiness."

~ Attrib. Bertrand Russell (1872-1970)

To live simply is to deny at least some of my wants.

I won't have a place to put them. I don't need everything I want. Some things I just want.

And then I won't have to take care of them. After I'm gone, no one else will have to take care of my things. So much easier. Less to care for is equivalent to a simple life - living small.

That's a great plan for a little hobbit such as myself.

Enjoying nature and the simple life.
