Our life is frittered away by detail... Simplify, simplify, simplify! ... Simplicity of life and elevation of purpose. - Henry David Thoreau
verb -fies, -fying, -fied (tr)

As I thought about what word I wanted to embrace this year simplify seemed to reverberate most deeply within me. Not sure where this word will take me this year, but I'm looking forward to it.
