Thoreau for your Thursday…

It is dry, hazy June weather.We are more of the earth,farther from heaven these days. We live in a grosser element.We are getting deeper into the mists of earth.even the birds sing with less vigor and vivacity.The season of hope and promise is past; already the season of small fruits has arrived…The prospect of the heavens is taken way, and we are presented only with a few small berries.June 17,1854.
