All summer, in starts and stops, I have been reading Walden by Henry David Thoreau. In between moments-early weekend mornings outside on the lawn chair, late at night on the couch, I worked to "get" this famed book. Thoreau is finally reading to me as an old wise one, a friend to listen to. My,oh my! The keeper of the simple life. He was brilliantly nutty and the definition of an individual.
"Simplicity, simplicity,simplicity! I say, let your affairs be as two or three, not a hundred or a thousand; instead of a million count half a dozen, and keep your accounts on your thumb nail".
