Hermit's Dwelling


I've always been attracted to the idea of just walking away and letting society play its own games. If society wants me, let them send a letter.

Great fucking quote. I'm with him, as long as we can still have a shower and flush toilets.

That's no quote, that's my feelings on the subject!

But yeah, flush toilets beat a hole in the ground any day.

You've always had that side to you, my darling boy. Always. And you know- I see you as living and being content in your own world, even when that world is right in the middle of another busy one. I see that in you. I think it's awesome.

It's true. I often think of my little home as a mountain shack, with me sitting on the steps with a pipe and a shotgun. (Probably a bad idea in real life.)
