I Want to Live In the Wild: Iso Others Who Share This Dream
Ever since I was a child, I wanted to live in the woods. I think I was first inspired by Grizzly Adams on TV...but the thought has always been there.
What I have been longing for is a life out of the societal norm...where there is no use for money, only hard work. I recently saw the film, "Into The Wild" and can't get it out of my mind. That has been my dream for so long now. I would love to go and do the same thing, though hopefully not with the same ending.
I have hitchiked, learned carpentry and built a small house single-handedly, learned how grow plants from both seed and propagation, fished, and developed a good sense of problem-solving...
My only fear in doing this right this second is the pain of lonliness that I might feel after months or even years of solitude. I'm afraid of going stark crazy mad out there alone. My real fear is not of trying and failing --but of never trying at all.
This makes me wonder if there is anyone else out there who would like to do this journey, into the wild as well? I don't take this lightly...this is a great desire of mine and one I'm sure I'll live out, though when, I'm not exactly sure yet.
If I sound like yourself, or you know of someone, a group, or a WEBSITE for those who also share my vision, please post and let me know. I can't tell you how appreciative I would be.
Thanks for reading...God bless!
