Simple Beauty

The windmill with the Milky Way in the background evokes the longing in our small reality of a simple life. It is when we quiet our heart, like the still windmill, that we can appreciate the grandeur and beauty of the created world we live in. In short, simplicity of life leads to wisdom.
