How arrogant we were! We thought that we invented “Simplify and Retire”. It is an ongoing Quiet Revolution-worldwide…It is the concept of accepting a lower income and foregoing consumerism and garnering time and freedom to pursue what makes you happy.
Did you think it was a new concept? There were some pretty important people who thought of it first:
- St. Francis
- The Quakers
- The Shakers
- William Morris
- Henry Thoreau
- Helen and Scott Nearing
And many more. Certainly we walk the path of some very amazing folks.
