home sweet fortress

As I look at all the new development taking place in this vicinity, I fail to understand why someone who chooses to live in one of the several newer gated communities (they didn’t exist when we moved here in 1991) would then decide they needed to add their own six foot privacy wall with remote controlled gate around the property. They probably have a moat around the house, bars over the windows and attack dogs loose in the yard.

About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.
