Every day is a new beginning for me. I am finding more and more my interest dwindling here on the road system. This morning I walked outside with a cup of coffee and looked over my property. What I saw disturbed me, there are things that really don't belong, as they are made of manmade material. I have gathered many of the material things I have aquired that is not needed in a back to basic lifestyle and am either selling or giving away and I find it easier to give away than to sell. I will get rid of my cellphone hopefully in one month as soon as I take care of a few things. The Internet is still up in the air. I plan to build a log cabin at Lake Clark and I will sell my remote property and quite possibly my town cabin. These things are just possessions and more than I need. At Lake Clark, I will have everything I need. Fish, meat, clean water, wood for heat and cooking, mountains, rivers, creeks and glaciers and distance from the influences that have taken over my life. I just don't know what else a person needs in life. Just making this post makes me feel good. I will communicate by letter writing, a lost art, LOL. I know many of you will be somewhat disappointed if I rid my self of the Internet but, hope you will understand. I will at least keep it as I progress more and allow you to progress with me. I am sure you will understand. I will be back Tuesday.
