    Life As A Recluse

    Hey guys    I dont know what lead me to write this, perhaps a need to express my innermost feelings reguarding life. I long to live as a recluse. My dream is not riches and secular attainments. I only desire to live in a house up in the hills of san diego close to...

    I Have My Modern Cave

    Lately I have begun to isolate and not call people. I've disconnected my home phone and rarely answer my cell phone. I find that I save money and by not having to entertain others I can have no faults that can be depicted as good or bad. I like being alone. I don't have to deal...
