Our Reclusive Gardens, Part 3

This online daydream started with a comment by oxlin:

Bah. I’m sick of society. I want to go live in a shack somewhere with Teal and not pollute and eat mushrooms and herbs we gather and carrots we grow and draw and write and be happy.

For the benefit of those who weren’t around then, here is the conversation that followed, leading to the creation of the original thread:

(68) I know the feeling. My shack is further up the road, though far enough away that I won’t intrude on you and Teal. Some nice lettuces are coming in, and the rosemary is amazing.

69- ooh, all of us could visit each other and share recipes and crops! Green and Purple (Teal’s sister) could visit too and live in some part of the area.

(70) Yes! A community of recluses! …with perhaps occasional bus excursions to the outside world for important things like contradances and musicals.

Perhaps all of us Musers should just form a society far, far away from civilization. We all get along fairly well, so there would be no fighting. And a troop of us could stalk cautiously into civilization once a week to sell food from our gardens, and we could donate the excess money to charities… This sounds like great fun! And I could run my cat shelter within the community!

Ooh, sign me up!

And we should have a brick wall of some sort in the area, so the Big Bad Wolf doesn’t blow away everyone’s houses.

72~ Away from civilization?? Maybe we could create some civilization, it sure would beat what most of us are living in and around now……

Remember this is a daydream, an idyll by design. Here you can imagine your perfect refuge. Although role-playing is permitted, it is certainly not required, and should in any case remain within the spirit of the thread.
