Life’s enough in the stillness. Without the fanfare, distractions, elations. That’s all I want. I want to be able to hear nature, see God’s work. That’s what my soul craves. I don’t need attention, fame, travel, riches, adoration. If I can have a simple and still life with him who has captured my heart, I’m good. I just want to watch others laugh, kids play, people tell me their stories and sorrows. I wouldn’t say much, just give them the cleansing, calming presence nature gives me.
It took me 28 years to discover that I don’t really need everything society be hounding me to need. I’m good.
