Simple Living Works! Weekly

Posted on: May 8, 2016


This picture of podcast guest Ed Fallon was shot by Steve Martin in Paris at the pre-Summit climate action event after Ed’s 200-mile walk. He’s surrounded by thousands of pairs of shoes, symbolizing the marchers that weren’t allowed into the city. Instead, millions around the world marched. For example, see my blog Positive Signs from Central Calif.

Simple Living Works! Weekly Digest

May 8, 2016

In This Issue:

What’s NOW with SLW!

  • Our Daily Nudge reminders us that simple living is more than my or your personal happiness or success. Instead it’s about our mutuality.
    • What Is The NUDGE?
    • How It Works
    • How Do It Get It
    • How to SHARE It
    • More About Holidays
    • 2016
      • May — Theme of the Month: Earth Care
    • Weekly Edition – ReUse
    • The Monthly and Weekly Editions allow you to share nudges with your contacts in a way and at a time that works for you. Share by email, Twitter or web site.
    • All SLW! resources can be used for yourself, your family, your congregation or group – for inspiration and education. For example, if you’re tired of generic clip art for your worship bulletin, newsletter or web site, hopefully TheNUDGE will guide you to some more challenging, thoughtful reproducible items.
    • It is structured around our “Alternate Any Year Calendar,” plus some quotes and art from our collection “Spirit of Simplicity” and alternate celebrations from our “Treasury of Celebrations.” Most of the graphics are line art, “retro” drawings on purpose that highlight the text, the words.
    • While my weekly digest/blog focuses on what other simple living/minimalist bloggers and podcasters are doing, and promotes the SLW! podcast, each Daily Nudge will focus on one resource from SLW! timeless archives.
    • While my weekly digest/blog is extensive – some might call it “text heavy” – containing some 50 links, each Daily Nudge is designed to have just one quote, one idea, one link.
    • Follow me, Gerald Iversen, on Twitter for a daily nudge, or subscribe by email. Send NUDGE in the subject line to Follow me on LinkedIn or Google+ for the weekly edition. Follow Simple Living Works! on Facebook, Pinterest and now Instagram for weekly nudges. All the nudges are archived so you can catch up if need be. Go to, window #2. Your feedback is, of course, welcome.
    • The theme for May is a new look at Environment – The 4 R’s, especially appropriate for our podcast guest, activist Ed Fallon.
