The Corner………

“I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms….” Henry David Thoreau

“When I was a child  I caught a fleeting glimpse  Out of the corner of my eye.  I turned to look but it was gone   I cannot put my finger on it now  The child is grown,   The dream is gone.   I have become comfortably numb.”  Pink Floyd

Reflections & Life

“We always see our worst selves. Our most vulnerable selves. We need someone else to get close enough to tell us we’re wrong. Someone we trust.” David Levithan

“A lake is a landscape’s most beautiful and expressive feature. It is Earth’s eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature.” Henry David Thoreau

“…real childhood scars heal, but not when band-aids replace self-reflection.” Cameron Conaway

Simplicity begets……………

A stone bench adjacent to the beginning of the Oneonta Gorge trek. Always in the shade, the bench would be quite inviting on a hot Summer’s day…much less so this very cold January day.

“As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness.” Henry David Thoreau
