And if you've ever wondered why anyone would do that, stick around.
While I cannot relate to life in a cabin in the UP, I look forward to stories from someone who is living it. Or even just remembering the best parts. 😊
PLEASE write about it while you can!
There's something beautifully simple and elemental having access to natural peace and quiet and without any awful city hum going on in the background.
To see what you see, hear and feel - it's always such a privilege.
It's why I loved The Outermost House by Henry Beston and why I love receiving posts from Tom Ryan Author on Substack. I can't abide the city and live there in small doses, so to hear of others experiences when they go bush, it would be fabulous!
As always, I'm dabbing tears before I finish reading. Regardless of the topic, you touch me, Mona. Especially with this one! I live in a cabin and often wonder if I will still want to if Clay dies first.
I'll look forward to curling up with your posts as we snuggle in for the long winter months. Will keep the box of tissues within reach.
Cherish every moment Mona. I think it's just wonderful.
I’m looking forward to reading more about life on the island! Every year we plan a trip there, and every year life finds a new way to get in the way.
Your cabin is beautiful!
Why would anyone want to do it? Truly it is the one place I long to be. The friends, the water, and just good living is what it’s all about. What do I love about being in Drummond-pretty much everything!
Have you ever read the works of Ann LaBastille? She lived for years in a cabin in the Adirondack mountains of upstate NY. Beautiful writer and pioneer in preserving the beauty of that area. "Woodswoman" and Beyond Great Bear Lake" are some of my favorites.
