i read this on AA’s blog [trousersandtrenches.blogspot.com] and thought it was really telling of the times. of a unspoken truth/ reality we all want. instead of summarizing it i think i’ll just post it for everyone to read and enjoy:
It’s crazy, I know, but I want the simple life. A no-frills, lovely, simple, just-a-plot-of-not-a-lot-of-land, kind of life. And not that there won’t be pockets of insane adventures, travels to distant shores and expensive dinners at the top of some hotel penthouse. Those moments will absolutely exist. But I’m craving a low-key lifestyle, filled with a little house, love, music, vegetables, grass, and a little side business. Intimate friends and creative community. Frequent gatherings at home and out. I want simplicity, so I’m opting out of something big, for something even bigger.
