Okay, this blog called THE WOMEN'S COLONY seriously cracked me up.
They talk of a tiny bit of paradise off the grid, for women only, especially those who have spent their time child-rearing and working and volunteering to the point of exhaustion. Which is pretty much all of us.
"The fantasy was more about the sanctity of a female refuge for older, tired women who needed some sort of estrogen infused utopia. When times were tough, they would simply utter Women's Colony and nerves would ebb, hope would rally, dinner would make it to the table, children would be bathed, bedtime stories would be read, and, finally, wine bottles would be drained."
What's your idea for paradise? Mine would involve a large library, manservants and pet minders.
