Decided to continue tackling the Slower and Simpler life by researching it from another angle: Uncomplicate. Different approach, some different ideas, and some thoughtful responses were the result.
One website that intrigued me: http://livethecharmedlife.com/2010/08/100-ways-to-uncomplicate-your-life/
It has an interesting list of ways to uncomplicate your life.
Uncomplicate - it resonates with me because it acknowledges that life IS complicated. Maybe a bit esoteric, but I like coming at it from a new perspective. Just a thought.
