Dreaming...

If I could snap my fingers..
We would be in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas (where I am from) you have read in my side bar maybe... the love of the Ozark Mountains and her beauty that I have.
We would be living in a one bedroom cabin with a basement on a few acres in the mountains.
We would be gardening, maybe sell our extra produce and some hand craft items at the farmers market in Fayetteville AR.and or the Eureka Springs AR farmers market.
Honeyman and I would be enjoying the numerous miles of cycling trails that are there. I would be enjoying running on them as well. We would go hiking at the numerous places there to hike.
Life would be slower, simpler, healthier, easier, calmer, quieter... simpler, oh did I say that already. :O)
It would be less, but in a oh so good less way, less stress, less dollars to live, less house to take care of, less bills to live, less sighhhhhhhhh yes less :O).

Don't get me wrong, I appreciate my life as is, I am grateful and blessed I feel.  But I could do simpler, quieter, slower, less :O)....................

Its in the plans, down the road, I can see it, its there beckoning me ..... :O) 

Off to bed with me to dream of slower times :O) ..... good night :O)...

This is actually a photo of Greers Ferry Lake, the area of the Ozarks I am from. Fayetteville and Eureka Springs AR are a bit west of here.  All are considered to be the Ozarks of Arkansas

I came across the ozarks last year on a YouTube series called American Homestead. They're living in the mountains as off grid as possible. Really well put together videos and interesting. Worth a watch if it doesn't make you long for home too much!

It is so beautiful there! I can understand why you would have that dream. I have never been to the Ozark Mountains, but back in the 1980's I read Mother Earth News magazine about all the people that were homesteading in the Ozarks. They featured a couple in every issue. That was my dream then. Simple is good.

Texan,

I can totally understand why you would rather be in Arkansas.

Your pictures are gorgeous!

You are not alone in your desire to have it slower,
less is more, ahhhh sighhhh...
I too felt that exact way right after I turned the big five o.
I think what cured my dreaming was a nice 2 week trip to Kauai
(lol).
Maybe it's time for a vacation???

I've been to the Ozarks before. They really remind me of where I live, the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. It's really nice there. I hope it's close for you.
