Description

More than 40 years ago, a man moved to an abandoned mining town to be alone. He says that there are days in the winter "when it's so quiet that the noisiest thing is the snow hitting your jacket."

I keep thinking about this episode. The sound of the snow, the inside of his home. So well described. I can relate to this man. I wish I could write to him. Thank you for this episode & for the podcast!

Soo maybe theres a way... he would enjoy writing and receiving letters, however infrequent...can be his learning to 'socialise', we are never to old for learning!

This is really bittersweet and beautiful. The man sounds like an unfortunate but warm and good humoured soul and I feel really touched by his story. Thank you for this quality episode. Huge fan
