The Simple Things

The Simple Things Issue 92 February


Sharing pancakes. How to nap, pause and listen. Why we love a grebe. Chocolate baby cakes. Love wisdom. Art Deco Britain. Vita Sackville West’s odes to dogs. Wintering well. Fair trade chilli & parsnip dahl. Satisfying darning. Modern nomads.
There are two choices when it comes to February. Hibernate, embrace the duvet and wait for spring, or hold it lightly, look about you and find reasons to be cheerful.
This will see you through the darkest of days; flipping a pancake or two is always fun, watching the antics of a dog is guaranteed to make you smile, and the courtship dance of grebes (this month, on a lake near you) is a thing to behold.
On the subject of romance, consult our love oracles, where wisdom comes from surprising sources. Elsewhere, we’re learning to tune in to sounds that energise and uplift us to transform our mood.
Sometimes to thrive we simply need to take a nap or remember to pause – then before we know it, winter will be over and the year ahead rushing to meet us.
