Simplicity Perched within your dining room the world still rotates around the sun. Between these bursts of doldrums, contentment shall soon come. The love and warmth of better days fuels an inferno of inner strength, for in our hearts we are together no matter this crisis’ length. And this shall be your sanctuary, a respite from the storm, a sliver of sunshine through the drapes, a favorite quilt to keep you warm. Simplicity shall shelter you in the moments life is rough. You shall have all that you need, for this must be enough.
