Those who live the simple life
Are those who enjoy simple things

Like    driving a car becomes EXHILERATING!

Smelling a flower dizzies with JOY!

Oh that day I started to live the simple life –
Getting the soul    the spirit    isolated
Getting to know myself COMPLETELY!

When the very dust on the floor had life    had extra meaning

Just the touch of my own skin had fascination

Both enhanced

I felt myself alone in the UNIVERSE!

Oh that day I started to live the simple life
Just looking out the peephole nearly set my feet in motion

THEN   when someone lifted the lid
When I popped my head into that cool    fresh air
Ahhhhh     heaven!

    Imagine being alone in the universe! All would be just as it always was and not corrupted as it is now. Some day perhaps.......!

    Thanks for the comment Daver, that one armed bandit was a part of our simple We'd been given tokens at the camp ground to play a game each, the whole time we were at the casino all my husband could think of was his bike parked outside. I think our gambling was the road. Strange, huge billboards (free breakfast..yeah!:), a small city plumped in the middle of the desert. Part of my memorable 'simple life'. :) love you, Mikki
