The wilderness

I did not realize that I was missing something by taking this journey into the wilderness. A journey where there is no telecommunication. A journey where there is no internet. A journey where you leave part of your self somewhere and try to tell yourself you can do without it. A journey where a manofewords becomes a man of manywords when it comes to fixing his phobias. A poisonous plant called a hemlock becomes so insipiring and a paradise preoccupied becomes occupied with nolstagic ideas. It is a journey that is fulfilling in someway. A journey that cures some of your addictions. A journey that gives the chance to connect with family and your inner-self. Once you travel that journey you feel you want something to fill that void created. Something that lifts your spirits. That outside touch with fellow bloggers. I missed you guys!

    Well, those journeys are a part of what makes us better people. Sometimes we get caught up in the nuances of new things. I was away for a week in mid-December and loved every minute of it. I probably could have gone longer, but that was the end of the vacation.

    But I am more than happy to be back among those that inspire, educate, instruct, and befriend.

    Welcome back.

    Thanks for the inspiration that you have given me Mac. As a newbie I have learnt a lot from you. I have discovered that hemlock refers to a poisonous plant among other things. It boggles my mind why you chose that name. I have been wondering why.

      If you know anything about philosopher Socretes, then the familiarity with hemlock becomes apparant. Socretes was treated like an outcast and imprisoned for his “outside the box” thinking. He would not stray from his beliefs. He was given the choice of exile or death. He chose death. As a form of execution, Socretes was forced to drink a potion made from the root of a hemlock bush. He slowly died.

      As a testament to his resolve and to my own, I use the name “Hemlock” as a sign that I am willing to die for my beliefs.

    Yes I know Socrates very well but I did not know about the hemlock factor. Thanks for the insight. It is great to have something very strong inside. It inspires to do great things.
