Solitude and Splendor: Living in the Schoolhouse is the story of how I followed my dream of living alone in the forest. As I lived simply and close to the trees, snow, bugs and mountains, I survived and thrived in my handyperson’s special of an old, one-room schoolhouse in the rugged wilderness of western Maine. Without electricity, a phone or running water, I was able to walk back in time away from the modern world. I was spellbound by the amazing power of the forest to reveal itself to me in joy and wonder through the ever-changing drama of the seasons. Solitude and Splendor shows how I lived my dream and presents a vivid account of the challenges I overcame as I sought a different way to live as an antidote to the 24/7 speeded-up, multi-tasking character of today’s world. I survived the cold and a chimney fire, bonded with bats and mice and followed my artistic inspiration during this transformative adventure in my forest home. Solitude and Splendor celebrates the richness and beauty of nature as I was so privileged to feel it and it shows that peace can come from having the time to savor everyday joys.
