Art of Simplicity

Some years ago, there was a Mensa convention in San Francisco.

Mensa, is an international organization for people who have an IQ of 140 or higher.

Several of the Mensa members went out for lunch at a local cafe.

When they sat down, one of them discovered that their salt shaker contained pepper, and their pepper shaker was full of salt.

How could they swap the contents of the two bottles without spilling any, and using only the implements at hand?

Clearly — this was a job for Mensa minds.

The group debated the problem and presented ideas and finally, came up with a brilliant solution involving a napkin, a straw, and an empty saucer.

They then called the waitress over, ready to dazzle her with their solution.

“Ma’am,” they said, “we couldn’t help but notice that the pepper shaker contains salt and the salt shaker contains pepper…”

But before they could finish, the waitress interrupted & said…

“Oh — sorry about that.”

She leaned over the table, unscrewed the caps of both bottles and switched them.

There was dead silence at the Mensa table.

For most of the problems in our lives there are simple solutions, but it is our “Brilliant” minds that complicate every simple solution. …Change the Caps and enjoy life !!

Simplicity resides in the complexities

Complexity is just simplicity turned upside down.




A Share of Peace

The Tree Remembers & How!

The Axe Forgets
The Tree Remembers.
…African Proverb

The surging pain of the strike
The slashing that seethes the soul.
The emotions deepen the wound
Such is the exacting nature of the hurt.

But learn you must
To gradually evolve
To let go the past
To grow anew
Arise from the scars
Forget you may not
But forgive you can!

Like the barks of the tree
Although scathed and bruised
By the cuts of the axe
Growing out new branches
And blossoming into spring
Flowering in fortitude…
Strengthening the Soul
Renewing the spirit

For the Bark of a Tree …
Tells the tale of sheer grit
And strength in the grounding.

Your life’s scars are patterns
Life has drawn on you
While you held ground.

Replenish &Regenerate. Only to bloom again in time!

Be proud of who you are.
You are amazing! !

You and I

When you take a step
And hold my hand
As we dance as one
Listening to the tunes
Of our beating hearts.

Moving to the melody
Sensing the synchrony
Sharing the love
Spreading smiles.

Without a word…
We know for sure
Whatever comes along
We can make it all right
However lost we may seem
We will find our way
Yes, you and I.
