Summer is here and as we all go out and work in the garden, or take hikes with our dogs, we can always get more perspective on nature from Henry David Thoreau. I've already heard from several friends who recently traveled to Walden Pond and saw firsthand the environment where Thoreau worked, and kept notes on life around him in his little cabin.
I love to include some of Thoreau's Quotations in many of my e-mails and even in snail mail letters. (I still love to communicate by letter) and have found some friends and relatives who share that desire.
This book on Thoreau quotations is so helpful. "We discover a new world every time that we see the earth after it has been covered for a season with snow."
And "Not till June can the grass be said to be waving in the fields. When the frogs dream and and the grass waves and the buttercups toss their heads and the heat disposes to bathe in the ponds and streams, then is summer begun."
I keep this book close, both at home and when on vacations. Hope you can enjoy it too!
