L'art de la Simplicité: How to Live More with Less

L'art de la Simplicité: How to Live More with Less - Dominique Loreau, Louise Lalaurie Yes, simplicity is essential in life and yes, you should buy a comfy armchair, have flowers, be kind with yourself and others, have only a few items of (good) clothing, sleep well, eat fine food, and workout BUT most of these if not all are normal things to want in life.
