    Fabulous collection, Ron! There are so many of us out here yearning for this kind of simplicity and clarity…but few can sort through the clutter far enough to realize it.

    • Ron Clendenin August 6, 2013 at 12:20 pm #

      Thank you Jeffrey for visiting my new blog. Your comment is poignant but glad we’re both trying to make a difference.

    Awesome list. I haven’t heard of some of these people. I’ll check them out for sure. I just started blogging about simple living as well. Living with clarity of purpose, focusing on what’s most important, and getting rid of everything that gets in the way is something that’s been on my mind for a long time. Such an appealing message.

    Looking forward to reading more!

    Ron, though I am not a minimalist, I’ve made it my aim to live as simply as possible for many years now. As circumstances change, I find the simplicity can be brought to a new level. So I never tire of reading about others’ journeys. I found myself writing about it on my food blog this week, so I think I must be getting ready for another level!
