Contemplation of the simpler life

On Walden Pond
On Walden Pond

Addie took this and we all enjoyed it. A Columbus Day weekend trip to search out fall foliage ended up with us picnicing alongside the location of Henry David Thoreau’s hootch on Walden Pond. Literally, I could spit and hit the hearthstone from where we are seated. So…bread, cheese (no wine…not allowed in the park)…and Oprah’s magazine, which Laurie took about two minutes to take up and begin searching the article on the season’s hottest boots.

Bears go to the bathroom in the woods, Thoreau contemplated life in the woods, and Laurie shopped in the woods. Seems fair.
