As Simple As The Sun

makes me happy.

I'm reading this great book by John Robbins, who would have been the heir to the Baskin-Robbins fortune had he not decided to (at the age of 21) that not only did he not want to work at Baskin-Robbins anymore, he also did not want access to any of his family's money.

So after putting himself through the University of California, John and his wife moved to a small island off the coast of British Columbia where they lived for ten years with annual expenses of less then $1000.

And while I'm only a few chapters into The New Good Life, I'm totally picking up what Robbins is laying down...

The new good life is neither one of self-denial nor self-indulgence. It's a path of self-awareness and self-knowledge. It's a way of living with respect for yourself, for others, and respect for the life of this beautiful planet we share.

Love it.

Also, the sun was also out today.
