Coming Back Here...

I was away sitting house for a couple weeks. It was nice having running water, a refrigerator and freezer, a shower, a television and more space.

At first I was depressed, but after a few days the quiet solitude has reassured me. My thoughts are seldom interrupted with human activity. The sounds are peaceful. I hear the breeze ruffling leaves up high, and birds calling. My dog seldom barks and the solitude of my nature hideaway buffers the chaotic world and its unconsidering "certified" youth... Its a balance of perceptions, trading the perspective of safety among people for a deeper, quieter role in the woods. Insanity? Its a matter of opinion.

It is a struggle to build here, but I am confident it will be rewarding. Its hard to find places like this.

The mosquitoes have been attrocious. Last year there were very few in late summer when it was dry.
