  • I completely agree! :yes:

  • I completely agree! :yes:

  • The content of this post is something everyone should read. 😉

  • I agree completely Ex_goat_milker.

    Everyone needs to see the beauty of quiet… The simplicity of the blank page… To stop once in a while, during the hustle and bustle of life and really think…

  • Hmmm… well Corindy, that was not exactly what I think she meant.  I think it was meant to convey peace, as she took a short blogging break

  • But that is where you are wrong my dear Ex_Goat_Milker.

    Due to my knowledge of Coppers Wife I completely disagree with you. I think that if she were taking a blogging break, then she would not have posted at all.

    She also would have made it more clear, so as not to confuse her readers and cause them to worry about a blank post, followed by nothingness. Making them wonder if she was eaten by wild turkeys, or had become possessed by her sewing machine.

    Instead she posted a space clear of all distractions. A place to enter your own thoughts or feelings into the nothingness that was her post. To cause her readers to stop and take notice of the clarity and simplicity of life if they really stop to think. To encourage non-bloggers to enter an imaginary post of their own. To cause all to pause and reflect.

  • What you are talking about sounds more like a depressing black hole.

      Copper’s Wife does not want to depress her readers!  She means to uplift and encourage them in doing good, so during this time of year when the world is full of stress, she means to make us take a moment to reflect and enjoy this time of the year.

      Besides, if something had happened to keep her from blogging it would have been more likely that she had to make one more trip to Jo-Ann’s.  Despite the fact she said she is not going again until January.

  • Indeed it is YOUR suggestion that would depress her readers! Coppers Wife taking a blogging break? It doesn’t get much worse than that!!!

    No, I suggested only that she causes her readers to reflect on simplicity, or to be creative (as Coppers Wife often encourages them to be).

    After reading your last comment, it seems I am winning you over to my side of the debate!

  • Simplicity!  It is the complexity of the post that grabs my attention.  The thought that must have gone into it is truly astounding.  Whatever made you think that it was simple?  Who knows how many hours of thought went into this post?

      I’m getting threatened with the delete button :eek:… methinks that is too simple!

  • Ex_Goat_Milker,

    Your second comment says you think she was conveying peace, yet now you say her post was complex?

    Peace is such a simple thing. Yes, the process of getting to a peaceful state may be complex (thinking world peace here). But to convey peace, would be to convey a simplicity, not a complexity.

    To say she posted a complex post to convey peace seems to be a bit of an oxymoron. No?

  •  Sometimes the things that we look at seem simple at first, but on a closer inspection the complexity of it’s simplicity begins to dawn upon us.  However, it can be a bit disappointing when on a further examination what we thought was complex is really of the most simplest construction.

     Take cRobg’s comment.  It could be taken as he simply agrees with his wife as he commented right after her, but on looking further we realize that he does not name who he agrees with.  Thus, he could be agreeing with his sister-in-law whom he knows, though deficient in the art of the English language is surprisingly talented and intelligent in other areas of her life. Or he could see some jewels of wisdom in both sides of the argument and so is agreeing with both so as not to have any of his Christmas gifts taken back.

  • Or… As I know the case to be, CRobG did not read any of the comments, and barely glanced at the post by Coppers Wife, but commented just for the sake of commenting, agreeing with all, and yet no one at the same time.

    So shall I assume, from your last comment, that you are indeed admitting that while you thought the post was complex, it is indeed simple, just as I stated, and that you are now disappointed in it’s simplicity, instead of rejoicing in the non-complexities of the post?

  • In your “Ummmmm” statement, do I take that to mean that you could be unsure about your “no” answer, therefore complicating the debate in your own mind?

  • In your “Ummmmm” statement, do I take that to mean that you could be unsure about your “no” answer, therefore complicating the debate in your own mind?

  • No, my “”ummm’ statement” does not show a state of indecision.  It was more an “Ummmm I’m trying to figure out what you’re trying to say to me” ummmm.  The words you chose to convey your meaning to me were put together in such a complex way that their meaning was almost lost!

      May I suggest you read Copper’s Wife’s above post to help you settle down into a state of complex simplicity. 

  • If you’ll notice, in Copper’s Wife’s above post, Kelli commented that it was “another” simple and peaceful post, thereby showing that this was a simple and peaceful post, thereby agreeing with me!

    So there! :p

  • But oh my dear sister, Barbie heart said in her comment to the posting of the 13th in reference to our, ” philosophical disscussion” that it was on the “Complexity of Simplicity”.  Thereby she seems to feel as I do that the post is complex in its simplicity!:laugh:

  • What say you Amanda? :wha: (and remember vat happened to dear Vilbur )

  • Could it be that it was a simple, peaceful, *and* philosphical post showcasing complexisity (that’s not a word, but it is now), all in one. Copperswife is very creative afterall. :0)

  • mothers do these things you know…  there is so much going on and so much to do 🙂

    maybe she is expecting…

  • 😆 Mom??? Is there something you aren’t telling us???

  • 😆 Mom??? Is there something you aren’t telling us???

  • Now I’m really confused. But in a peaceful and simple sort of way. ;0)

  • Kelli, your complexisity (my new favorite word ) astounds me!

  • Yes, it’s true!  I am expecting to watch my grandchildren tomorrow night.  I’m expecting to slather them with hugs and kisses and read at least 1,657,421 books to them.  It’s grand, I tell you, GRAND!!!
