KNOWLEDGE AND GROWTH
DO NOT NECESSARILY
MEAN ACCUMULATING MORE,
BUT LETTING GO
OF MOST EVERYTHING.
Doesn't this lovely quotation make you think?
Living with less is a value I have practiced for many years, especially living in India part of the year. How can I explain having so much to my friends who live with so little?
This winter, since Christmas, we have been living with less here in Florida...LESS WARMTH, THAT IS!
Our neighbors, longtime snowbirds, tell us that
- "This is the coldest winter I've experienced in the 20 years I've been coming here!"
- "It should be 20 degrees warmer this time of year!"
Yup, we're living with 20 degrees less.
And just Who The Heck Am I to think the weather should be a certain way?
Working hard to learn the lesson the elements are teaching us....we let go of the expectation of hot weather this Valentine's Day Sunday. I gave my husband mittens and a hot mug of mocha java. He gave me flowers, chocolate and a space heater.
