Crave isolation?
Monday, Jun 05, 2006
Imagine that you had a house in a serene wooded environment, that it would take you 30 minutes of driving (or 60 minutes on horseback) to see anyone who didn't live in this house. Imagine that you could go there whenever you wanted, but if you went you would have to stay there for two months at a go. Sure you could go in to town, but you couldn't go back to your regular abode. How would you feel about this place?

Is isolation a godsend or a frustration? What thoughts does this inspire about yourself and your current lifestyle? Please leave a comment with your thoughts. And no, this isn't directly applicable to my present life. I just think I'd enjoy the discussion.

If you like it, please share it.
