Hey Kitty,
I don't know if you saw the previous comment I left, but I compared the setting for your house with Walden Pond. Wanna swap it for the view from a garage apartment in Joisey? :)

well, Michael, it appears that your previous comment has disappeared into cyberspace. :O :)

Anyway, you're right about Walden Pond in more ways than one, although for some reason that comparison hadn't occurred to me til you said it. It's the perfect setting for me to be coming to the realizations that I am having. Themes of independence, interdependence, simplicity, responsibility ... not to mention that it's just plain gorgeous here.

I just now checked out a website showing Walden Pond. There is a sign posted at the Pond with something Thoreau wrote about being there:

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life. And see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."

Michael, I needed to read that, so thanks for your post. :)


been checking out your pictures... I like your blog.

Thanks, Reid. I just spent some time reading back in your blog. Very thoughtful and insightful writing. You're exploring some important things there.
