“Only that day dawns to which we are awake.”— Henry David Thoreau, Walden
Few authors have inspired me more than Thoreau. I find inspiration and wisdom every single time I reread his observations and thoughts. My personal Walden surrounds me at Genius Loci, its beauty never failing to inspire thoughts of the beauty of utter simplicity. Could a vase of roses be anymore stunning than a vase of these weeds? If we have eyes and heart…and humility to see…we cannot help but marvel at the beauty of exquisite and utter simplicity!
