Simple Understanding

Don’t oversimplify
a world that is complex,
but in recognizing complexity
there comes simplicity in our lives,
and that piece of simple understanding,
creates a little more peace and harmony within.

About Ontyre Passages

Alive and well in the Rocky Mountains. I'm a fantasy writer who also dabbles in poetry, short stories, and map making. My Ontyre tales are an alternative fantasy experience, the stories rich in mystery, adventure, and romance. Alternative fantasy? Not quite steampunk. Not quite gothic. In truth, the real magic is in those who discover what's within.

  1. Simplicity is complicated unnecessarily !

  2. Christina sometimes we get so stressed trying to experience everything. Cramming our lives with the things we think we need to stay balanced. Being human is complicated at the best of times and I think about every human thinking thoughts continuously like me and I feel tired.

    • Truly, Kath. Slowing down my brain may be one of the biggest and most important projects I’ve embarked on. It’s exhausting and too often self-defeating. Balance is vital, but it shouldn’t be exhausting to achieve and so I’m always striving to find the harmony that will help achieve the balance I seek. 🙂
