My View From The Woods the Story

Todd Marsh

Fell in love with the name My View From The Woods because it is so ambiguous.

The name can be taken literal, as in this is the current view, whether it be in the garden, on the hiking trail, mountain top, or from the porch of a hopeful homestead.

It can also mean the thoughts and opinions of a person fighting to break free from society's demands & expectations and simplify their life.

In actuality, it will be all of that and more.

It's hard work to make a simple life.
