The first time I went to the Adirondacks, specifically to Osgood Pond, I felt that I had always been there, that it had just taken years for my body to catch up. But even then, I wasn’t sure I could live there full-time. There is a quiet there that is both embraceable and intimidating. The aloneness almost pushes into loneliness. So far I stay in love. But I’d be scared to try always.


  1. Beautifully expressed. You've captured remoteness perfectly.

  2. Wow. Very well expressed. I am not sure I have ever been anywhere that remote.
