thoreau: (New Thoreau)
So - time for a reset of the 365 project. :) On a New Year's Day, Thoreau wrote (at age 34) in his journal,

"I wish to be translated to the future - and look at my work as if it were a structure on the plain. to observe what portions have crumbled under the influence of the elements."

Remarkably, little has. If anything, Thoreau's message that we should strive for a simple life seems more timely as the years go by - if ever harder to attain.

so - for my 365 project for 2011 - I'll be using quotes from Thoreau, Emerson and other Transcendentalist thinkers as well as quotes on the themes of simplifying our lives, finding peace and being responsible for our paths and for honoring the paths of those around us as free of judgement as possible. Each path is unique - and should be honored accordingly. So here is 1.365:

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
