On Walden Pond

Read the best books first, or you may not have a chance to read them at all…”

David Henry Thoreau

in 1845 Thoreau left city life to live in the woods. He chose the achingly beautiful, and allegedly bottomless Walden Pond, near Concord, Massachusetts. He ended up staying for over 2 years, inhabiting a log cabin he built himself. Immersing in nature and isolation, he hoped to better understand the impact of society on the human soul. This is all chronicled in his book ,Walden. In doing so, he became the great grandfather of the modern stoical practice of self reliance. All of us are dealing with isolation currently. This isolation is social, professional, physical and very personal. We will inevitably be reflecting on our current society. When we emerge from our log cabins, how should we change it? #timetothink #letsmakelemonade
