I wish there was something I could say
to convince you to climb back on the grid
because it sounds like you’re not too happy being off.
I hope you don’t get too comfortable there as one tends to do,
even in the most inhospitable environments,
when hope is absent.

Thoughts on being off the grid and how hard it is to get back on when hope is absent?
Well you can just read any entry for that.
