Fresh air and fall leaves are good for me

Alone and up north

In my recent posts, I've alluded to the fact that I'm away from home alone at the moment. I don't want to go into details, but I will say that it was unexpected and sudden. The situation doesn't just involve me and I shouldn't talk about it with strangers when I still have personal conversations to have and things to figure out.

After a couple nights in hotels, I rented a cabin in northwestern Wisconsin for a few weeks. My strategy was to find somewhere about the same price as a hotel room but not a hotel room. I also looked for a place that was dog friendly, even though it turned out I wouldn’t be bringing my dog after all.

I love it

This is the perfect environment for me to focus on the types of thoughts I've been processing lately. Having the ability to escape to a place where there are more lakes than people makes me feel very lucky. Splinterlands, Hive, and crypto in general play a big role in making it possible for me to live anywhere.

It’s a lot easier to thank your lucky stars when you can actually see stars.

Tomorrow can be a surprise. I'm okay with that

Though I don't know what the future holds for me yet, I am not afraid. I'm perfectly fine with living in an RV. Right now, I am considering all my options. If I do not return to the place I called home, I will have a lot of things to donate or sell. Donating certain things has tax benefits, which I should definitely investigate. I already said more about that than I should have.

No matter what, I need to be outdoors more. When I get away from concrete, cars, billboards, and everything else we pile on top of what is really Earth, I feel a connection to everyone on the planet, including the dearly departed. I used to worry that I would sound crazy if I said things like that. As if I were a live version of a Dr. Bronner's soap bottle.

In retrospect, I think I was crazy for worrying about things like traffic and crime. I'm beginning to believe that if it's possible for someone to escape city life, they certainly should. I'm up here to "get my shit together" and I think I will, but not in the manner that anyone expects.

All I know is that I feel good and I’m enjoying my time alone with all of the lakes and trees.

Circumstances are always coming to us for our highest good. If we are able to accept this possibility, and embrace it (as you are), then the good is revealed.
i'm happy for you brother. Embrace the mystery of what will come next.

Nature and the great outdoors away from the city is truly an enlightening experience 😊 it's just sad that we now have stuff like border checkpoints cuz of the pandemic so it'll take a lot of time and money to even plan for a trip.. thank you for sharing some amazing photos of your trip!

I won't have to deal with border checkpoints, luckily. So far, I'm not planning on going anywhere too far. Probably only places I could reasonably drive to. The US is too big!

I do have a current passport, though, so I haven't completely taken another country off the table! Like I said, things are kind of up in the air right now.

Thanks for stopping by!

Whatever problems you're facing now, remember to take care of yourself.

This post felt reassuring to read, made me happy. I !LUV that you don't want to talk about your private life online, that's a good attitude especially on HIVE where you can't permanently remove what you say.

Good Luck~
