I'm drawn to the idea of a simple life and I mean REALLY drawn like magnet and steel (thus the blog name, Following True North) but what does that actually mean? I'm pretty sure that living simply reaches far beyond minimalism and a chemical free kitchen - although, don't get me wrong - that is important to me.
I see it as more of a practice, like yoga. You work on it over time. You stretch, you inhale, you exhale, you find - surprise! - more space within. And it becomes a daily attempt to honor all that lies inside simplicity (like gravity, the law of cause and effect, the sun rising in the east and setting in the west - give or take a few degrees) and then move on from there to the choices and decisions we all have to make to maintain the simple life we're looking for.
Soooo.... this blog is a landing place for random thoughts, puzzles, discoveries and any odd bits of wisdom I find ping-ponging around in my brain.
Comments and suggestions are VERY welcome. Thanks for reading!
