Someone on Twitter recently used the phrase “head in the sand” in response to something I posted, accusing me of avoiding reality. This comment reflects the common misconception that the Quieter Life is a kind of retirement, a withdrawal from real life. Many people believe the pursuit of The Quieter Life means walling oneself off […]
