The Simple Things

"Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world." --Voltaire

I found this quotation and a calm came over me. Most of the best things that life offers are incredibly simple. Reading, dancing, laughing, walking, gazing, breathing. These are the basics of being human yet it's so easy to take them for granted. And, it's equally easy to dismiss them as unimportant. If I were to get up on my soapbox for a moment, though, I'd challenge you to think of them as some of the most important aspects of life.

And, the cause no harm part? Wow, the world really needs some of that right now. If we could get back to basics, especially when conflicts arise, what a different world this could be.
