    Simplicity at it’s best!
    Thinking of my attempt to NOT over indulge, I worked hard to have 2 pairs of shoes, buying only when a pair was on death’s door step!
    That worked well until I was gifted several pairs of shoes….I need to pass them on… soon.
    Wish I could be as restrained with my craft supplies! Aghhhhh!

      We live in a world where such simplicity is not revered unless you live in a cloistered situation. I suspect that Ryokan was offering a lesson, not a command.
