Tao of the Day  
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 in pennies, you have with your poverty bought a lifetime of days.
- Annie Dillard, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek

I am beginning to think that a key to this cultivation is to let go of as many expectations as possible. Of people, of ourselves, of our environments, of our relationships. It seems to leave only what is, and enough room to make of it what we will.
