I have decided

I have decided to find myself a home
in the mountains, somewhere high up
where one learns to live peacefully in
the cold and the silence.  

It's said that in such a place 
certain revelations may be discovered.  
That what the spirit reaches for 
may be eventually felt, 
if not exactly understood.  Slowly, 
no doubt. I'm not talking about a vacation.

Of course at the same time I mean to
stay exactly where I am.

Are you following me?
