The Witness Tree- But Outer Space (Robert Frost)

But outer Space,

At least this far,

For all the fuss

Of the populace

Stays more popular

Than populous

What is being simple?

A very basic question, don’t you think? We say this every day. From our daily routine conversations, to our business dealings at work. “Be simple, Jack!”, one says to another.

But as do many of our artist from coast to coast, “being simple” is what makes our world so complicated, sometimes.

Think about it.

What is being “simple”? And at another level, what kind of “weight” does this word/phrase carry with it, every time it’s spoken?

I think it carries, sometimes, dire controversy and/or consequences.

Besides going into all of the situations we, as human beings, say and ‘proclaim’ this attitude towards another upright walking being, I’d like to put a question to a question.

Does “being simple” dedicate and press a higher (albeit lateral) burden to a speaker?

Yes. Indeed. I believe so.

Being simple, in communication, puts higher levels of pressure upon that individual.

A simply put communication is Expected to have a complicated and detailed explanation.

Many of our discourse, in the present, do not have these together and binding. I guess many things are the public’s (you and I, all of us) fault for letting these things “go”.

Simple, does not mean “simple”. Simple is Complicated. Complicated, sometimes mean, unsophisticated and “not well thought out”.

No one’s perfect, for sure.

Lets respect the Simple… the Powerfully Simple.
