Welcome to The Simple Swan!

Every Sunday I share a story, reflection or poem inspired by nature. I hope each post brings you a little simplicity, encouragement and joy.

“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature.” ~Anne Frank
