Crazy - 5 Minute Free Write Challenge
This challenge prompt goes right along with yesterday’s word, change. I’m been told many times I’m crazy for picking up and moving to the woods to live off-grid. I guess it’s all in how you chose to define crazy. While my primitive lifestyle is foreign to most folks in the U.S., it has its merits.
But back to crazy. It’s entirely possible, I might be crazy as a loon. For I live without running water or electric. No utilities whatsoever and I use a fancy dancy outhouse to use as my think tank. I like to think I’m crazy like a fox. For when regular folks lose power, say for a weather event or have a boil advisory for a water main break; I’m sitting pretty back here like nothing ever happened. My food does not spoil and my heating remains steady.
If I get snowed in for a few weeks, it’s no big deal. I carry on as I would normally. My life is not affected by the things that can knock a whole city out. Because this crazy fox, has prepared, just as our ancestors did.
