Would you take and enjoy an opportunity to stay in an isolated cabin for a month by yourself?
Yes, I would like to spend some time in meditation.
But my current situation doesn't permit it.
No, I would miss my family too much. I like being alone for a few hours at a time, but not nights. My husband is like part of me and I would really be miserable alone.
Its ironic to hear the answer to this question in my head. I have always been a people person and did not do well being alone for very long. I'm older now and am living in the aftermath of the death of my only child. I am not very patient with other people's need to say comforting things (which usually aren't). Right now I seem to need to be alone. The healing is a journey that I seem to need to navigate through my writing and my art. So I would welcome the opportunity to stay in an isolated cabin.
I would most definitely welcome and thoroughly enjoy this opportunity. I treasure "alone," time and will often take a few days to do just this. I rent a cottage on the lake and pack light and off I go. I take with me, simple foods that need little or no preparation and juices and water....6 or 7 books, magazines, crossword puzzle and cryptogram books. I also bring a couple of notebooks,& pens & pencils. Comfy walking shoes and my cell phone.
Yes, I could easily be quite contented and comfy doing this for a month. 30 consecutive days of rest, fresh air, contemplation & introspect....mind and body cleansing, reading, writing and totally simple living, with me, myself and I? Yes, yes, yes. Sounds like heaven to me. I'm planning it right now. Thank you!
A cabin made of wood
and stone that stands in awe
of mountains, catches sunlight
when birds are breakfasting,
traps sun when the forest
breathes out another powerful
Yes I'd stay in this cabin. You know where it is?
Yes, yes and yes. Do you have one that I can use?
This would be a wonderful time for reflection and enjoying nature, in the vein of Henry David Thoreau and his writings on Walden Pond. I don't know that I would wax philosophic as well as Thoreau, but it would be worth the experience.
I would also use the time to get some exercise and take photos, two of my favorite things to do.
