From H.D. Thoreau’s “Journal” to warm your heart…

230px-Henry_David_Thoreau“A cold and dark afternoon,the sun being behind clouds in the west.The landscape is barren of objects,the trees being leafless,and so little light in the sky for variety.Such a day will almost oblige a man to eat his own heart.A day in which you must hold to life by your teeth…
Friends long since gone there,and you left to walk on frozen ground,with your hands in your pocket.Ah,but is not this a glorious time for your deep inward fires”
From “Going into winter quarters”-111,110-112 13Nov.1851
