This simple man lived alone in the woods in the mid 19th Century. He was a loner, a deep thinker, and a visionary of sorts, with good human qualities. I have read his works for years, returning to them when seeking solace and solitude, especially when enjoying nature in the fall. The colors of the maple trees. The nice, cool, crisp air -- sometimes a breeze wafting red and yellow leaves. The soft sun- warmed ground, sometimes enjoyed under a lean-to. And when a soft shower comes, I scoot back under the lean-to, smiling and knowing I've cheated nature's attempt to moisten and chill my body. If it should thunder -- at my favorite place -- it sounds like Rip Van Winkle's "ninepins". Hail-stones are not uncommon, which is welcome and enjoyable. 'Nuff said; the recalling of this author's works evokes such enjoyable memories. Please -- read and enjoy.
