“Despite all our amazing ability, ingenuity, technology and industry humans are the one species who have not mastered the art of simplicity.”—Rasheed Ogunlaru—

The bee performs a simple job—walk across the stamens to get pollen on its feet, walk across the pistils to seal everything up with nectar—and go home. The end result of the bee’s job, however, is more complicated. The bee pollinates the flowers, producing seeds, fruits, and sustenance for life on our world. Einstein said that without the bee, mankind would only survive for two years. And the bee’s job is so simple!

Closer to home, and in our minds, we may wish to explore ways in which we may simplify our lives. What concerns can we eliminate? What tasks can we make easier? Do we need help or can we give help? There are a lot of questions involved in the search for simplicity, but every little bit helps. Practice simplicity as you practice optimism. They are somehow related.

The simplest thing you can do for happiness is to share a smile
Recognize that You are the only you in the world
And, Everything is going to be all right.

John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”
