a solo retreat

Yesterday, on a whim, Marcus and I decided to take a day trip to Round Top, Texas, a tiny village about 90 minutes outside of Houston.

"I believe all National Parks should be closed to visitors unless they have been invited. There should be a selection process..."

"... and it should be based on intelligence, respect for nature and intent. No selfie sticks, no babies, no kids younger than an age where they can grasp their surroundings and the concept of nature. Littering and damaging nature in any way should be met with a fine so steep that no one would dare. In NYC, our parks and landmarks are overrun by the ugliest, rudest tourists one can imagine.
