While we use headlamps and other flashlights a lot on the homestead, (see Headlamps: Don’t Leave Home Without Them!) we also practice seeing in the dark. I promote this not only because it’s practical, using less energy, requiring less equipment, but because I believe it’s safer.

In the aftermath, though, home alone while Michelle and Aly return to their work weeks early, I have a little leeway to think about independence, and what it means to us as a family.
