Some sages say the simplicity we seek floats atop all the complications of daily life. It rises above the chaotic demands (and resulting worries) of clocks, people, money, status, health. It’s calm, quiet and disconnected from the clamor below. Simplicity comes, they say, from accepting life’s messiness and our inability to control it. We descend into the ruckus, do our work, and rise again. We then relax into observation, appreciation, gratitude. I’m gliding down now to snatch a couple of doughnuts, then appreciate them with gusto. Hey, this is simple.
