Transcending The Society Of Mass Consumption

Money comes and money goes. 

Stuff rots and breaks down. 

But simple pleasures endure.

Sunrises and sunsets. 

Eagles hunting on the wind.

A mossy forest.

Laughing with a friend.

Singing a favourite song.

Spontaneously dancing.

Planting seeds.

Ripe, red tomatoes on the counter.

Eating foods you have raised, harvested, preserved, and prepared with your own two hands.

The key to happiness

is transcending the society of mass consumption,

and finding contentment in your own simple pleasures.

What are your enduring simple pleasures?


  1. Bird song each morning (and throughout the day at present) Watching the antics of my chubby little groundhog friend as he goes from under my shed to out in the open.

    1. What would we do without birds? I hope we never find out.

      We saw our first Robins yesterday, and the full Worm Moon brought gulls and geese to the fields around us. Ground is thawing!

    On a sunny day, the endless hours of laying on my bed reading, day dreaming with my two cats. Perfect.

  3. Fresh air, moving my legs, trees, flowers, reading, homemade soup, open water.
