At any time, I could head to the middle of the forest, strip off my clothes, and dive into a river to wash off the sins of contemporary society in the primordial essence of nature. Knowing I have this freedom is how I get through my day, and that freedom hinges on access to America’s public lands. At the same time, I’m drawn to the idea of owning the pristine interior spaces and vast exterior views that fill slick home design magazines and click-bait listicles. Somewhere along the way, my definition of happiness has become wrapped up in this contemporary fantasy.
