High Coo – July 12 – National Simplicity Day

Henry David Thoreau born on July 12, 1817

Today is National Simplicity Day which celebrates the life and philosophy of American author and philosopher Henry David Thoreau. One of his oft-repeated quotes is “Our life is frittered away by detail. Simplify, simplify.”

Whether your interest is Minimalism, Nature or Transcendentalism, Thoreau is worth reading (again). Here is today’s haiku:

Simple Enjoyment

Following one’s breath

or focusing on an ant,

enjoy solitude.

    Your haiku certainly strikes a chord with me today 👍.
    You mentioned my old blog only giving you snippets to read recently. This isn’t quite correct. This is the way my home page or category pages are organised instead of showing full posts. But click on any post snippet and it should take you to the full post. Let me know if it works.
