When you need to hide out, where do you go?
I rarely feel the need to hide-away.
I have a hideaway at home.
Our local library is so small, and I know most of the people who use it, that it would be of no use.
The nearest law library is 2.5 hours drive.
Just a 10 minute walk and I can be in a place where I am highly unlikely to meet another person (hear people certainly, but not see or meet).
A 20 minute drive, or 1 hour cycle, and I can be in bush country where I can pretty much guarantee not to see or hear anyone else (hear the odd aeroplane overhead is about all).
I seem to spend so much time exploring abstract spaces that I have the opposite problem, finding anyone with whom I am able to communicate any of the ideas that seem to me to be significant. So in effect I am “hidden in plain sight” most of the time.
Even when I speak or write, the probability of anyone decoding all of the levels of information I have intended to encode is very small.
