It’s surprising that the country isn’t dotted from coast to coast with these little forts… Perhaps it’s the distilled version of solitude that daunts us. Only the over-proof are driven to try it. For the rest of us, the Cabin in the Snow is best kept as an idea. A place where our true self resides knowing it has no real home in the world.
