My entry for The Daily Post’s Daily Prompt: Privacy.

Can’t get a moments peace in this neighborhood, privacy is not honored here. I peek my head out ~ Do I hear any voices, is anyone going to stalk me as I make my way to the mailbox? Is this what house arrest feels like?
We refuse to let any tears fall because we will continue to look for the beauty that is hidden here ~ Keeping in mind that we will return to the Driftless Region and know that we will appreciate it all the more:
Keep Your Spirits High,
