I have pictures to share, a response to Shannon’s comment on this post, and just my normal blabbering to attend to on here (ex: finished socks! another sock started, frogged, restarted…), but for this evening that is all on hold. As I knitted this evening I was reading a library book and found a passage that struck a chord with me, especially in relation to above referenced post.
Living simply is not about rejecting the material comforts in life. However, it does involve unburdening our lives, living more lightly with fewer distractions–whether they are material things, activities, or relationships. It means letting go of anything that interferes with a high quality life. (p 25)
from Choosing Simplicity: Real People Finding Peace and Fulfillment in a Complex World by L. B. Pierce
What do you think “a high quality life” means?
