IS SIMPLE ENOUGH?

By Charles Robert Lindholm

I’m hoping by now

you know

beyond a shadow of a doubt

how I feel

about you?

But if you don’t

I could make this

a lot more complex

and wordy,

but would it be ok

if I just tell you

“I love You”??

Is simple enough

for you?

Because I really could

go “On and On and On and On” !

Inspired by a quote by Steve Jobs and shared with me by Jem Croucher – “Simple is a lot harder than complex; you have to work really hard to get it right. . . . ”

Rule #1 in Selling, especially if it is yourself – when you get to “Yes” – stop talking!

My wife said, “Yes”!!

          1. You’re welcome! I was not by my parents’ bedsides when they passed away. I was able to visit my dad after he had a stroke. We used writing to communicate. I had a chance to show him affection by rubbing his paralyzed side of body! He knew that I loved him. So I understand!

  1. You know, I absolutely love simple. I’m Canadian, but have lived in Brazil for almost 15 years now. My life is so very simple, but I’m so content. Absolutely love it.
    Steve Jobs does have a point, especially if one lives in a culture that doesn’t always appreciate the ‘simple’.
    Great piece.

      1. Oh yes, I work with an organization called, Youth With A Mission. Came here in 2002, married a Brazilian in 2003 and have been here pretty much since (although we have done a lot of traveling and lived for short stints in other places).
        Of course I’m enjoying it. Hope you have enjoyed the little bit of mine.
        Oh yes, the Brazil in your stats is most definitely me. 🙂

  2. simple words say the most. we cannot deny the hearts longing but our language is limited so we use simple words and the person receiving it knows its depth and meaning. this one is your gold scribe lines of beauty immeasurable.

    1. Yes, simple is best. I’ve checked to be sure and the answer was yes. Isn’t it just like the knowing looks that says so much without speaking? “Gold scribe lines”?? Sounds good? Thank You so much for the kind words. Especially meaningful coming from a master of simple, deep and emotional!!
