There are many wonderful people pursuing and promoting simplicity. Fortunately, some of them are gifted in communication and choose to encourage and inspire us with their words. I enjoy reading their unique perspective. I’m sure you will too.

Another great list of weekend reads. Loved Leo Babauta’s piece and the question, “What’s important to you?” That question can be the impetus to simplifying and embracing what matters. Thanks!
Thanks for this round up. I especially liked Rosie Leizrowice’s piece. The idea of borrowing friend’s jeans that “sort of” fit is a humorous but spot-on illustration showing us that yes, minimalism could be the lifestyle of the future.
So inspiring! Thank you! :)
