Where does silence, solitude and simplicity fit into my life at the moment? Let me start by simply saying that it is fine with me to be home. My life is as simple as I want to make it, wherever I am. At home I cook a little more, my husband and I have meals together and live our lives together, but he gives me all the silence and solitude I want.
Driving to and from the cottage, however, is not simple--planning when to go, dealing with traffic, the expenditure of gas for the car, packing and unpacking. What I do miss are the sunrises, walks on the beach, and consecutive day completely alone without human beings or electronic noises.
