Where is your place of refuge & retreat?

Do you have a place to go for some downtime?

A cabin perhaps, or a workshop?

It's been a kindof rough ride this Fall, the past couple of months.

I could stand a week offline up at the cabin. Or two.

Just me and the dog.

oh damn! talk about a remote get-away. Looks like you have a nice little project ahead of you. Goodluck on your offer, I would love to see what it looks like inside and once you get some work done.

My getaway- always involves music. Getting lost in the woods, walking on a beach during the winter, anywhere I can detach, get lost in the music and just reflect.

It's going to be a lot of work. But the work itself is the refuge, in a way.

Sawing boards, that's the therapy.

Before enlightenment, chopping logs, carrying water. After enlightenment, chopping logs, carrying water.

Looks like a great project if it gets the green lights!

Travel Well

Actually, I was expecting the DW to talk me out of it, or at least put up some
opposition. But no, she's all for it.

Always gives me enough rope to hang myself.

I should mention that I already have a cabin that is nearby this one.

This year I spent about a week in the Spring and about 7 weeks in the summer
in the cabin. But none this past Fall, alas. And now it's getting kindof cold and
snowy up there, so I won't be back until April.

When I get settled into the cabin I get a feeling of safety, well-being and relief from
stress that I never get at home.
