Beauty in simplicity

Today I want to share a post with you on simplicity.  I found this image on the Martha Stewart website.


Simplicity: Noun
sim·plic·i·ty

The property, condition, or quality of being simple or uncombined.
Clarity of expression.

It is amazing to me how beautiful something can be and how simple at the same time.  I find so much inspiration looking at photos like this.  I want to get rid of the clutter, simplify, and keep what is most important to me and my family.  It urges me to donate to the needy, help the helpless, and give time to the broken hearted.  Simplicity makes me want to be a better person.   

Simplicity is the glory of expression. Walt Whitman

The art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters, is simplicity. Walt Whitman


Simplicity... what a beautiful word

I totally agree. The more simple, the better. It reminds me of the saying, "an uncluttered desk, is an uncluttered mind." A lovely post.
