Finding the Great OuterSelf

Outerself.ca – From Rooster’s Restaurant in Barrie, Ontario.

  1. A little known part of the human psyche that yearns for the outside world.
  2. A mind state unintentionally ignored by those who spend too much time indoors.

Although it’s an ad campaign for Moosehead beer, the idea is true enough. Could you write a character who spends all his or her time outdoors? Possibly a hermit in some mountain cabin, a street person living in a city, or someone sailing around the world on a small boat. What scenarios can you come up with for a total outdoors person and what kind of person would they be, or have become?
