"Life seems neither long nor short, and we take no more heed to save time
or make haste than do the trees and the stars. This is true freedom, a good
practical sort of immortality." <snip>

I do precisely. That is why I am researching starting some type of
outdoor school. The beauty and elegance of nature is at times
quite overwhelming. I just returned from 4 days on Mnt Williamson in
the Sierra- napping at 11,000 feet in the sun on a ledge is awesome
and no comparison to "civilization". However, we do depend on
civilization to get us to the trailhead; so I do not advocate a return to
John Muir-ish times.. although him sleeping ontop of Shasta next to
the fumeroles in the winter is quite an experience!
