on To The Woods
After a very difficult divorce I moved to my family's cabin in the woods in Northern MN. I stayed there over some of the more difficult winter months, the temperatures averaged -10's to teens. There was limited heat and electricity and no running water but it was the most centering experience of my life. There's something so profound about how your life changes in that environment - everything is so purposeful. Chopping wood and carrying in water - all of these things become an essential part of the day. It was a very healing isolation.
