I went to the city because I
wished to live deliberately, to
front only the essential facts of life,
only to find it considerably difficult.
No slight to you sir, but
I have found it much easier
(altho certainly not easy)
to live in community with the woods
than to live in community with people.
People in my community have tended to
stubbornly have other ideas
and make decisions apart from nature's
That being said,
I remain in city and
in community with others
in hopes that I will see if I cannot learn
what it has to teach, and not,
when I come to die,
discover that I had not lived.
