My husband Kelly heard about The Audacity of Simplicity and passed news of it on to me. I didn’t want to wait till I had read it to get the word out about it…looks very timely and got good reviews. Here’s a bit about it:
Financial strains, housing crisis, credit crunch,climate change, overconsumption, war, and a general malaise plague our world, but what do they all have in common?
They are a consequence of a modern way of behaving that all too often excludes the simpler ways in life.
- How do we truly feel when we buy extra ‘things’ amidst store crowds in comparison to chatting and watching a sunset with people we love?
- Why are we more willing to spend time buying those lifeless objects instead of receiving a warm free hug?
- Have we been incorrectly programmed in some manner? How much is time sitting in a park listening to the birds really worth?
- What products are truly life sustaining, and what is causing us stress?
- How have we lost our way and why?
The Audacity of Simplicity tackles these questions and more by revealing some of the very notions that defy a world of turmoil, decay, and unhappiness.
It asks us to walk in strength towards a more hopeful future that redefines progress and success as personal and social well-being, environmental stewardship, relationship-building, non-material growth, inner reflection, and social capital.
It envisions a caring humanity with shared emotions and a common destiny.
