Calling Me Back

Bottle of Walden Pond WaterWhen I visited Walden last year, I brought back two small bottles of water from the pond.

One bottle was for a good friend who had introduced me to Thoreau‬ more than twenty years ago; the other bottle was for myself.

I feel the pull back to Walden — and the peace and solace I found sitting on a stump at Henry’s cabin site — nearly every day. I hope to return in late October.

But for now this little bottle of pond water must suffice.
