"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."

This is a lovely shot at Walden Pond, the site of the actual cabin Thoreau lived in while writing 'Walden' and the rocks of authors. It is a writer's tradition to take a rock from your garden, from wherever it is you have traveled, and add it to this pile near the sign carrying his most famous quote. I have a stone both from Seattle and from Boise in this pile of thoughts and hopes. It's a remarkable journey.
