Putting things in perspective…

If you cultivate a healthy poverty and simplicity,
so that finding a penny will literally make your day,
then, since the world is in fact planted with pennies,
you have with your poverty bought a lifetime of days.
It’s that simple. What you see is what you get.
Annie Dillard
