Thoreau's Journal: 02-Jan-1859

Essentially your truest poetic sentence is as free and lawless as a lamb’s bleat. The grammarian is often one who can neither cry nor laugh, yet thinks that he can express human emotions. So the posture-masters tell you how you shall walk,—turning your toes out, perhaps, excessively,—but so the beautiful walkers are not made.

i like reading Thoreau. Could you please change your template? It's hard and a strain to read against a black background.

This is a wonderful site and I agree with the last post that the background and print have too much contrast.

I'm kinda fond of my blog background - light beige and dark print. Have a look: http://lookingup1.blogspot.com/

Anon, actually it's a dark green background. And Cathy, I do like your colors also. I may work on the template in the future, but I'd have to change more than just the background and main text to make it work right. Although Henry would say something like "Distrust any enterprise that requires new clothes."
