Simply Magic!

“If a thing can be done adequately by means of one, it is superfluous to do it by means of several; for we observe that nature does not employ two instruments [if] one suffices.” – St. Thomas Aquinas

Simplicity is in vogue.  Right alongside, artesian foods and frugal living and urban homesteading it seems that just about every magazine has something to say about the joys of living simply.  Typically these articles discuss the benefits of organizing one’s tupperware or donating under-used clothes or decreasing the number of committees one agrees to chair.  There is another side to simplicity though.  It is close in character to eloquence.  It is solving a complex problem with a simple answer.  Knee-deep in apron making, this post on http://www.sewmamasew.com may have made my week!  Simply magic!
