It’s the little things

It doesn’t take much to add a little beauty and simplicity to your life.

I found this box at a craft shop. It put little reminders in it along wishes of things I want to do.

This yarn will become a shawl.

Peter Mayle, Thank you.

 

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetMany years ago I started reading Peter Mayle books. The first one I read was a “Year in Provence”. It was funny and opened my world to new way of living, slow and simplistic.

I have to say there is something to be said about living this way. I stopped rushing around like everything was an emergency. I purchased fresh produce from farmers markets and ate that instead of store-bought. I started buying organic meats because in Europe foods lack preservatives and additives. What a difference fresh and organic anything makes in one’s life. And breathing!!! I learned to take deep breaths and really appreciate the beauty around me.

Yes, the slow simplistic pace with which he lived his life in Provence prompted me to do the same in my own and I’m a better person because to that.

Peter died I believe a month or so ago. I look forward to laughing, and learning more about the place he called home with his book “My Twenty-Five Years in Provence”.

Until next time,

Jacqueline
