Here I am , in the mountains 20 miles to town (town, a store, gas,and a bar) 50 miles to a city. Cut some more fire wood, talk to the deer,as they come to see what I'm doing. Don't get me wrong ,it's beautiful here. That skin hunger (sucks) ! ×2. It's been 3 month ago Linda and I went canoeing at the lake, watching the eagles fish, and otters play. That was 2 days before she died. I miss us!!

Tod, it might be worth the occasional trip to the "city" if there is a Seniors Helping Seniors,, School District or EOC office where you could volunteer to help others. I know it helps me when I can help others. Helps to take off my blinders and see others more clearly. Sort of how cutting wood warms you twice--I know you know that old saw! Take care!

Where you live may be isolated, but you're not alone.  As long as you have your computer and can reach out to others, you're not alone.  Unfortunately, most of us on Widowed Island feel alone even in a crowd of people.  There are a lot of us who understand.  I definitely know what you mean when you say "I miss us!"  I say that every damn day on this new journey!  But, we have to remember to be kind to ourselves.

(((Tod))) it does sound a bit isolated where you are but also beautiful at the same time.  Yes the skin hunger definitely sucks big time.  Wishing you softer days ahead.  Peace and Hope...
