Simplicity Day - 12th July

I am told today 12th July is Simplicity Day

It celebrates the birthday of Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) who advised us to simplify our lives.

Here is one of his quotes that I particularly enjoyed reading:

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler' Henry David Thoreau

Keep it simple!!

Henry is an inspiration. I have had the pleasure of walking around Walden Pond. It is not far from where I live today so if ever you get to New England, Walden Pond will have to be one stop to make.

Lets make that a deal Steve - you can take us for a walk around the pond!

Great quote - one of my favorite expressions when describing my life and work is "elegant simplicity" - that is, it's so darn simple, it's a thing of real beauty. Just like Walden Pond. All the best.
