I wish that were true. I’ve been out of it for the past few days though, and I’ve been repressing a deep-seated urge to go hide in a cave. I’m seriously considering it in a few weekends: Thoreau’s essay on Civil Disobedience, Walden and shutting off my cell phone. I really need to get away. I’m even getting annoyed with my tap classes, and I love teaching tap. I just need a break. Hmmm… Break a window? Though, I doubt that would solve my issue. My ideal work situation involves staying at home indefinitely and requires basically no human interaction. I really feel that Thoreau felt the same. Though, I imagine it was easier to cut himself off from the world than it is for us. A cabin in the woods doesn’t have the same amenities we have come to see as necessary in everyday life. I wonder if I could get by with just a cell phone, and no other telecommunications? Probably not, because watching the tv shows I like online requires a highspeed internet connection. So, maybe just internet and a cell phone? And I would need electricity. And because I’m a snob, and have gotten accustomed to cooking on an amazing stove, gas. I wonder if I could generate electricity with my lifecycle… but alas, no batteries with which to store the energy. Solar panels are so expensive. I found some to enable me to live off grid though. That’s right for less than $10k, I could have no utility bills. All I need now is my tractor and my goat, and I’ll be all set to homestead.
