Simply beautiful

Simply beautiful

These two small stones were found high up in the mountains where “nothing grows”. Where there is nothing else than glaciers, snow and rocks. I always wonder about how such a tiny little piece of art comes into one person’s focus after many others have climbed by. And looking close, how many different kinds of lichen grow on that small area! There are at least 7 different ones. And they change colors depending on how much water and light is available. I love these two little rocks. I got them from my husband. What I love about him, is that he is able to see and find the special little things in nature. I got these instead of flowers:)

Lebt einfach!

Lebt einfach!

Those were the closing words of my Dad’s speech at our wedding almost 20 years ago. It could mean: “simply live!”, but he meant: “live a simple life”. Two words with a lot of wisdom in them. But also a goal set, which is way more challenging to achieve than I ever thought it would be. Whereas our parents were born into a world where some literally had nothing and were forced to live a very simple life, I find myself struggling to fight off all the stuff that keeps flooding into mine. Living in a simple way is not simple these days. In this blog I will share my thoughts about things and how they affect our lives.
