wholesome reality
#Thoreau 04-Nov-1852

Must be out-of-doors enough to get experience of wholesome reality, as a ballast to thought and sentiment. Health requires this relaxation, this aimless life. This life in the present. Let a man have thought what he will of Nature in the house, she will still be novel outdoors. I keep out of doors for the sake of the mineral, vegetable, and animal in me.

What kind of animal is there in you? By the looks of your blog I was guessing a gold fish. Was I right?

my happy times like friends at the pub all run into each other like one!, yet my happy times in nature i can pick them out, different things each time, making them more memorable and therefore my happiest!.
