Solitude



It is so nice being away from Yuma Road, the dirt road running north towards town.  
Now at our present location it is a quarter mile away.
The ATV traffic is now just a distant buzz every once in awhile.


I don’t know why I put up with it as long as I did.
I don’t know either Dad.  What were you thinking?


The English actor Tom Hardy said “Being alone for a while is dangerous.  It’s addicting.  Once you see how peaceful it is, you don’t want to deal with people anymore.”

I get it.

Glad you're at a spot you're happy with. And I agree with Tom Hardy, I don't like going places that are too peoply!

As the Eagles would caution: 'don't let the sound of your own wheels make you crazy'. I can almost hear Beans caterwauling in the background. "You are not by yourself! You got me!"

It's funny that some folks move up where I live and they never get quite used to the quiet..It does take some time, but it's worth it to me.
The noisy ones usually leave after a year or two.
