Thoreau and Into The Woods - who knew?

part of this is about where I am, and part is about the RNC. You may decide.





Witches can be right, Giants can be good.
You decide what's right you decide what's good

"I went into the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life... to put to rout all that was not life; and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."


Into the woods,
It's time to go,
I hate to leave,
I have to, though.
Into the woods-
It's time, and so
I must begin my journey.

The way is clear,
The light is good,
I have no fear,
Nor no one should.
Into the woods,
And who can tell
What's waiting on the journey?



But, to speak practically and as a citizen, unlike those who call themselves no-government men, I ask for, not at once no government, but at once a better government. Let every man make known what kind of government would command his respect, and that will be one step toward obtaining it.


Fly, birds,
Back to the sky,
Back to the eaves
And the leaves
And the fields
And the-


To wish and wait
From day to day
Will never keep
The wolves away.

So into the woods
The time is now.
We have to live,
I don't care how.
Into the woods
To sell the cow,
You must begin the journey.


Into the woods to sell a friend-


Into the woods,
It's time to go,
It may be all
In vain, you/I know.
Into the woods-
But even so,
I have to take the journey.

I awoke to an answered question, to Nature and daylight. The snow lying deep on the earth dotted with young pines, and the very slope of the hill on which my house is placed, seemed to say, Forward!


And home before dark!


It is not enough if you are busy. The question is, What are you busy about?
