As we live and as we are, Simplicity - with a capital "S" - is difficult to comprehend nowadays. We are no longer truly simple. We no longer live in simple terms or places. Life is a more complex struggle now. It is now valiant to be simple: a courageous thing to even want to be simple. It is a spiritual thing to comprehend what simplicity means.
This weekend, 12months ago, we were camped up at Fletcher Creek. Ahhh! The peacefulness of the bush. The clouds rolled in as the weekend expired. Drizzling rain started as we packed up and left for home. The closer we got to home, the more it it was bucketing down - and NEVER BLOODY STOPPED BUCKETING for 2 weeks!!!
I think you know the rest of the story.
This image is truly the calm before the storm.
