Tuesday Thoreau

A  L  O  H  A !
"Removing toxic people 
from your life
 is like breathing 
fresh air while
 walking alongside 
of the ocean." 
                              Marala Scott

"To affect the 
quality of the day, 
that is the 
highest of arts." 
                                    Henry David Thoreau 

"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


What an influence
Thoreau had on me
when very young!

My first philosopher.
Making my solitude
and love of nature
a font of virtues.

Then he taught me
to put my thoughts
into words,
to be a writer.

Did you have such
an influence yourself
at a young age?
Thank You
Dear Friend!
                 Warmly, cloudia

I too found, and fell in love with Thoreau early. A love which remains.
