Simplicity


While reading the first chapter of McCarthy’s book, twice I wrote the name of this movie in the margins.  The first time was in response to the following line in the text: ” We overlook ordinary joys completely when we overextend our reach into the world of things” (p. 3). The second time was when she said: “Many pleasures come with painful consequences that override the original enjoyment” (p. 6).

I think this movie is a great accompaniment to Epicurus and Joko-Beck.  Why don’t you give it a try and let me know what you think.

Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter… Spring
