I see all of this and yet I don’t see the same desires reflected in the watery mirrors of my own soul.
What a beautiful post. I loved reading all these reflections. We each must find our own peace, whatever that may be. I'm finding more contentment in home life. I'm not sure I would be happy with homesteading, but certainly the chasing of things in search of contentment doesn't seem to be a valuable exercise. I once had a friend whose basic quest was "what should I do at this moment to nurture my soul?" I have yearned to be like her all of my life!
