179/365 Juxtaposition

179/365: I'm reading Thoreau's book Walden. It's about a man who went into the woods near Concord, New Hampshire just before the beginning of the 1900's and lived by Walden Pond for two years. It's a story about gaining an understanding of modern society through self-reliance, living simply and spending time in nature. I can understand why it's a classic, the lessons apply today perhaps even more so. February 4, 2013
