    the 'secluded' part of the village. The house lies just below the crest of a hill among cypress pines with views down a valley to the river a few miles away. It is a thirty-minute drive to the nearest town. I have spent only a short time here yet; I hope to spend the rest of my...

    I'm Not A Recluse, I Just Prefer Being Alone.

    I guess the whole "recluse" thing is in my case only part-time. My kids are with me for a week at a time.  Monday to Monday and then they go to mom. In the time that they are not with me I find that I abhor humans taking up my time. I revel in getting home from work...

    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...
