[growing wildflowers on my porch]

i choose a simple way of life.. in most areas of my life, things are kept simple, almost minimal.. my house - instead of big and modern, i choose small and rustic.. my needs are simple.. and they are getting more simple as i get older.. i am never bored.. i just come outside, day or night - and watch my woods.. nature inspires my crafts.. my photography, my writing, my reading and cooking.. it heals me when i'm lowly and feeds me so much entertainment.. i have found i don't collect as many THINGS either.. favoured books go on my shelf, but most are recycled to someone else.. i don't need 20 pairs of shoes or an overflowing closet of clothes.. i am learning that most things in life are borrowed.. even the six acres woods, i'm only borrowing it for the small blip of time i'm here..

so in a world that seems to me, like most people want bigger, better, newer, more and more, clutter, diversions and pacifiers.. i'll take the other route more often than not..

I think your blog truly fulfilled the intention of the 365 challenge maker to express being off the beaten path. The flower is beautiful

I'm with you there, Sis!
More & more "stuff" requires more & more attention, resulting in less & less time for "freedom"......
which I value above, almost, all else.....smile

ps.... lovely tight focus with such soothing soft colors & bokeh!

The light in this photo is amazing! The flower looks almost translucent. Beautiful photo that begs to be framed.

Your own road, it's only travelled by yourself.
