give me the simple life...

today's flickr inspiration (and the song now stuck in my head) is all about the simple life. i think so many of us are striving for that these days. there is a huge movement of people trying to create a sense of simplicity in their lives. did this ever actually exist for people in time past? i guess that is debatable, and depends on your concept of a simple life. it is not one that will necessarily be easier but i guess, to me at least, one where you do not feel completely overwhelmed by trying to obtain things that aren't really important anyway. i have always asked myself, "will this matter to be when i am 90"? perhaps it is a cliche thought, and an unpredictable question... but maybe one we should all ask ourselves more. it is the simple moments that always seem to last in my mind, or that i hope will. what are the simple things you hold most dear?

I am most definately trying for a simple life. It's hard after living in the city and trying for world domination for years. Now I just want to bake bread growstrawberries and make jam. Love your stall set up. Well done on easing back into the markets.
