on this particular Monday...

On this particular Monday, I am considering solitude. Hiding in the mountains, away from everything and anything that makes me worry, stress and fear. I supposed I may very well be the only one that has ever felt this way. I am okay with that.

A list of what to bring (so far): coffee, snacks, a book or two, a notebook and my favorite pen (which seems to have run off again), maybe my laptop...maybe not, and warm clothes. That's as far as I've gotten. Well, possibly a bottle of wine too. 

And a cabin with a warm fire.

Only the essentials.

Possible places:
 


Maybe the mountains just remind me of peace and solitude. A reminder to let everything go every now and then. A good reminder. Worry, stress and fear are a part of life, but not good for the soul. Don't we all need a place and a time to let it go? 

Or maybe it is just the thought of that place.  

So...

As the Ennis Clan packs and plans to move during the busiest time of year, I dream of this place. 

As the weather gets colder and wetter and the days shorter, I long for this place. 

As lifelong friends face frightening news, I turn my eyes that direction.

As the world seems to be crumbling around me...
