Walden

Walden, by Henry David Thoreau

I read this book years ago, when I was angry and looking for ways to poke holes in other people’s arguments, and I got so wrapped up in some little details that I knew about Thoreau’s life that I completely missed the beauty that is Walden. Do I think that we should all move into little cabins in the forest and ponder our lives? No, though, sometimes a little cabin in the woods sounds ideal. What I do think is that there’s some profound insight in living counter to our culture that are worth savoring. If you haven’t read it for some reason, or you read it a long time ago, I encourage you to read it again. It’s worthy of your time.
