I go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds. I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief. I come into presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day- blind stars waiting with their light. For a time I rest in the grace of the world and am free ". = Wendell Berry
"To find universal elements enough ; to find the air and the water exhilarating ; to be refreshed by morning walk or an evening saunter.. . to be thrilled by the stars of the night ; to be elated over a bird's nest or a wild flower in spring - these are some of the rewards of a simple life" = John Burroughs
I love my simple life.
