A Simple Life

Do we really want it?

They say a simple life — with your basic needs met — will make you happier. But humans can rarely be satisfied with a simple life. We all want more from life. We crave complexity because it’s the complex layers of life that gives meaning to it.

“Because life is complicated and difficult. Anyone who says otherwise hasn’t truly lived.” — A. Lee Martinez
