The escape

With a mind clouded by countless thoughts (and the everyday gibberish that seems to surround us at every step), I thought a little fresh air would do me good. A weekend away from gadgets, computers, radios...two nights filled with only the crackling of the fire and the
sounds of nature.

Armed with some basic necessities, I spent two nights in a tent away from it all. It was wonderful.
Transcending time back to much simpler days, I read by the light of a paraffin lamp while seated on a log.

Everything worked out as it should have, except for the choice of book - I took with me a copy of The Myth of Sisyphus. This amazing work did nothing to clear my mind; quite to the contrary - I'm now left with many more thoughts.
