Spring is coming…

“Every blade in the field
Every leaf in the forest
Lays down its life in its season
As beautifully as
it was taken up.”
Henry David Thoreau

shoreline….

“A lake is the 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

‘tonic of wildness’

“We need the tonic of wildness…At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us. We can never have enough of nature.” Henry David Thoreau, (Walden or Life in the Woods)
