sometimes I fantasize about leaving the city, shutting off my cell phone, turning off the TV, closing my laptop, and leaving the daily grind behind to spend awhile in the woods. maybe a few weeks. i’d bring a stack of books, a camera, my notebook, and my lover. we would hike and fish and swim and stargaze and build fires and make videos and have lots of sex in a tent. if my world went quiet, i think my mind would go quiet too.
