Understanding Mom and Pop

I was twenty-seven when my parents retired to the old farmhouse in the middle of 110 acres in West Virginia. My mother was just 50 and my father 56. I thought they were crazy.

Not any longer.

I crave solitude and nature around me. I spent some time this morning just watching crows. I was going to get into my car to go to work and heard the caw. I looked up to see three crows sitting in a tree. "Three Crow Cottage" popped into my head. That's what I'll name my cabin, I thought. I watched the crows and listened to their calls and shook off the daydream for reality.

I wonder how long I have to wait for Three Crow Cottage.
