The perfect writing retreat.
why the woods?
I do not know.
When I need a break,
there will be a quaint little town nearby
with a winery and a restaurant
for eavesdropping as character development.
and the best homemade ice cream shop,
and a community theatre
showing one of my favorite plays –
perhaps a musical.
There’d be an area of historical significance
and a protected natural area.
to wander through the woods with only a water bottle, my notebook, and a pen –
to encounter animals unafraid of humans
because the animals perceive the humans
as neither threat nor food.
