We absolutely have to get rid of stuff so there’s no choice there. But do I need to blog about it? That is the complicated part. It seems that wanting simplicity and attaining it isn’t as simple as the word implies.
Let’s see what Mr. Webster says about it. Yes, I’m looking at a real book, not Mr. Webster’s, but “The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language”—a rather impressive title. Wow, here’s food for thought, or rather words for thought.
Simplicity 1. The state or quality of being simple; absence of complexity, intricacy, or artificiality. 2. Lack of good sense or intelligence; foolishness.
Yes, getting rid of stuff will offer us some kind of absence of complexity. On the other hand, does blogging about it show a lack of good sense and foolishness? Maybe so, but certainly not a lack of intelligence. I’ll leave it at that for now.
