December 30--We Certainly Do!

Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated. --Confucius

    Confucius lived about 2,500 years ago. If he thought folks complicated life back then, wow, what would he think of today's world?!?!
    Two areas of present-day complication that amuse me are baby things and kitchen gadgets. You surely do need a lot of stuff to have a baby these days. You practically need a mechanical engineering degree to operate a stroller. How did we manage to raise two healthy boys with so little of today's must-have stuff?
    My husband and two sons are all very fine chefs. I think given a good sharp knife, a pan and a heat source that they could make just about anything. My personal requirements would be a good knife, a Kitchen-Aid mixer, a heat source and a means to brew coffee. My older son is adamant about not cluttering their kitchen counter with unnecessary gadgets. Especially at Christmas gift-giving time, it is fun to see all the new kitchen inventions we really don't need. 
    I believe 2020 has taught us a great deal about "simple." We've learned a lot about what is essential, what we want for our future, and what we can let go. That is extremely valuable wisdom, a blessing of a very unusual year. 
    Love is simple--try it,

Here's a tip. Best knives on the planet:
