I Went to the Woods and…
…realized I’ve been in “the City” too long.
…awoke to quiet, punctuated only by leaves rustling and birds chirping.
…didn’t feel stifled by the summer heat; rather, I learned how to live comfortably with it.
…happily lived in community, sharing the bounty we worked for.
…imagined a simpler life.
…then wondered, “What if the simpler life came with just a few amenities?”
….then learned I can’t afford to live the simpler life I wanted.
…came home the same person I was before.
