Four Years

I decided, before I began the Ruricolist, that four years would be a good place to stop. Beyond that, I feared, I would be protracting something that belonged to a certain moment in my life beyond its natural term. But I was making the rare mistake of overestimating the prospect of change. All my reasons for writing the Ruricolist stand. Now that I come to it, four years is not enough.
