We Can Wish

The great mythologist Joseph Campbell claimed to have spent five years living in a rented cabin in Woodstock, NY dividing each day into four four-hour fragments– each of which he spent reading.

This went on for five years.

My question is- could an individual perform this same act of self-reliance in today’s day of social media, internet presence and, perhaps most noticeably, student loan debt?

How could I do this, speaking in pragmatic terms?
