missing stillness

2+ years in a giant city and today i am severely missing the wide open nothingness of rural America, where there is, blessedly, nothing to do but while away the time watching the grass grow.

no distractions, no politics, no TV…

just a welcome boredom that is the root of inspiration and creativity.

i miss unobstructed sweeping vistas of mountains and canyons.

hiking trails with no other soul on them.

sunsets sinking over flat-topped mesas.

empty deserts where the lizards have no fear of bi-peds invading their living room.

i need a Walden Pond adventure.
