Thank you for sharing OP and congratulations on getting back in touch with yourself.... a cleansing, rediscovery of what you once already knew but
Some may say, 'wow you went camping', I doubt their KOA campground version is the same as what you did.
I've been 'camping' before, but my time in the military taught me the benefits of months of solitude, with minimal provisions.
Setting off for a length of time in complete solitude
, occasionally, is exactly what the people of today need to do. No phone, computers, no
Only whole foods, fire, water, meditation and time to think and read, connect with the earth, plants, animals, and sounds around them.
If only everyone would take the time to do what you did, I believe there would be less violence and hate in the world because garbage programmed into
their heads by television, movies, lyrics, idols, video games, internet, junk food, instant gratification, fashion, and advertising would purge
itself, revealing the amazing person inside.
Next time, one up it, lose the camper, hike in hike out with everything on your back.
