thoreau: (New Thoreau)
January 9, 1855: "What a strong and healthy but reckless, hit or miss style had some of these early writers of New England....As if they spoke with a relish, smacking their lips like a coach-whip, caring more to speak heartily than scientifically true... They were not to be caught napping by the wonders of nature in a new country. They use a strong, coarse, homely speech which cannot always be found in a dictionary, nor sometimes be heard in polite society, but which brings you very near to the thing itself being described. The strong new soil speaks through them."

(ugh) so I turned home at Sandhill Road and am now home. time for a shower. The hill from Millbrae on pretty much straight up.
