In Grafton Street, Dublin, you never get bored: an army of street performers takes care of your entertainment. Stationed along the path, they do their best to impress the by-passers and earn some cash. Grafton street is only 180 m long and 6 m wide, but that afternoon at least nine talented performers gathered crowds and made the street lively providing all sort of amusements.
The biggest and the most happily looking crowd surrounded a young couple creating giant soap bubbles.
Simplicity and magic of their performance was truly fascinating.
The little ones ran around catching the bubbles; the grown-ups just stood there, staring in awe.
Simple things. What our life would look like without them?
Cuteness of a baby animal; a delicate flower…
… a green leaf…
… a barley spikes moving in the wind…
“If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.” – Italian actress Eleonora Duse
Even successful relationships are based on accumulation of the simple things that people do together. Simple like that.
One of my favorites – Zero 7 and their album Simple Things.
