Thrift is not a disgrace. One should not feel ashamed of simplicity. We learn from nature that decrease is part of increase. When a lake evaporates, its waters decrease. But the surrounding vegetation grows.
Through release of tension (like steam) something is lost, but it reduces the pressure and makes what is left more comfortable. In the same way, when people don’t come to your event they make more room for those who do.
When you find yourself in a situation of scarcity, draw on the strength of your inner resources to make up for what is lacking. Let the power of your content make up for the simplicity of its form. – Shar McBee
