Well, if I hadn’t gotten strep throat, Boris, I would indeed be doing just that. I’m enjoying Paradise perfectly well from my porch where I have to wait out a nasty throat infection. That’s why I have the time respectfully, and since it’s my JOB to write while I’m here, of course I have a computer with me. Not a phone.

It’s all about balance. I appreciate technology which allows me to work while I travel. Big difference between that and being constantly distracted from my surroundings. But then, Boris, as are we all, you are entitled to put your own spin on the conditions of where I am.

I might suggest that you read your own quote. It goes both ways. I’ve enjoyed the exchange. And I also very much respect your efforts with the sequoia.

Finally, it’s not my job or my intention to persuade. Clarify, yes, not persuade. Most of us already have a take and that’s where we stay. Given that, I gave my best effort to explain my thoughts. Didn’t work. Happy travels. I’ll be back out enjoying Paradise as soon as the antibiotics work.

Horizon Huntress, prize-winning author, adventure traveler, boundary-pusher, wilder, veteran, aging vibrantly. I own my sh*t. Let’s play!
