||Gail Fraser and her artist-husband Art Poulin believe that they have found a way to maneuver around the potholes of life by living simply and purposefully. They have been fortunate to enjoy a life of elegant simplicity on their 40-acre gentleman's farm and artist retreat in upstate New York where they can create their art. This book opens a window into their world of tranquility?a stark contrast to today's times, a kind of visual chicken soup for the soul. Combining Art's landscape paintings and Gail's thoughtful words, Finding Happiness in Simplicity provides a charming but deeply compelling message that there are everyday joys to be realized and that these small things can bring us closer to a more fulfilling life. The recommended joys of simple living are grouped by season and include: Plant Seeds in the Earth, Know Where Your Home Is, Be Joyful with Animals, Honor Friends and Family, Lose Yourself in a Small Town, and more.
