Wow, how time flies! It’s been a month since I’ve updated anything meaningful to this blog. That’s a shame, because life has not been postponed for the all of that time. On the contrary, it’s been extremely busy.
It’s amazing how this rat race, this huge machine of life gets us so distracted from what really matters. I was telling a very dear friend last night that I often find myself wishing for a more agrarian way of life. To put everything on hold for a whole year and live in a log cabin somewhere. Wouldn’t that be fantastic? Difficult, but refreshing.
At any rate, I’m still alive, still plugging along. My justification for working like a dog now is to one day have earned that cabin in the woods in some anonymous wilderness somewhere. Wouldn’t it be great if my friend could join me?
Well, what do you know! He is still alive! I hope all is well.
i fantasize regularly about being amish. i’ve written about this on my blog somewhere.
at minimum once a day my mind creates a scenerio in which i get up from my desk, speechlessly wave good-bye to my coworkers, shed my professional garb, and hitch-hike to an amish settlement. i can see myself churning butter and milking cows. hell, i can even see myself making biscuits and sweeping floors. really strange for someone who identifies with feminism.
sometimes i wonder if the feminism is really an expression of a woman trying to get out- back to who she really is- but can’t because of the mechanical systems of the world that have taken hold.
there is something very freeing about the prospect of abandoning civilization. i wish i could stop flirting with it and actually do it.
