I actually have tried convincing myself how 'better off' I could be. Friends that are married swear they envy me my freedom. But still... wouldn't it be the thing that rounds out the whole bargain? I mean... I sincerely love my life. My every day still astonishes me, even when I catch myself crossing my eyes at something that turns out to be nothing when you think on it. But... there's certainly room for another in my little woodland hermitage/asylum.

And Michelle? VERY interesting timing. I have been mulling over that very same concept for some time now.

Besides, it's successful. It works- even if it is rather sloppy around the edges. I have been doing this long enough to see numerous folk trying to do the same and the ensuing crash and burn.
I'll die here. With a grin on my face and likely a shovel in my hand.
Best of luck to you in your version, though.
