Simple collage by Lani
Voluntary simplicity is "a manner of living that is outwardly more simple and inwardly more rich, a way of being in which our most authentic and alive self is brought into direct and conscious contact with living..." Duane Elgin
And what artist in their right mind would want to live any other way than authentic and conscious with inner riches? I can't imagine. I guess the trick would be to remember that I have a choice when complex situations arise.
