Simple Things, Simple Pleasures

“It is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.” ~ Laura Ingalls Wilder

Today is just one of those days when I long for the simple and comfortable–a hot bowl of soup, a nice cup of tea, some graham crackers, a familiar old book.  I suspect it’s the solar flares riling me up so that I need some comforting through the simple and familiar.


That the solar flares happen is “science”. Their effect on electronics is documented.  Their effect on humans is less documented, but I am sure they have one. Last night, not knowing about the flares, I had an uneasy night of insomnia and black places. This has happened to me before during solar flares.  I will write about this more tomorrow, because today I’m not in the shape I need to be for the research.


So tonight is a night for the sweet simple things of life because they are real, and a little comfortable reality would be a very nice thing tonight.
