Thoreau for your Tuesday…

A warm westerly wind, the sky concealed and a storm gathering.a sober,cloudy afternoon.To-day i see yarrow,very bright:red clover,autumnal dandelion;…I make it my business to extract from Nature whatever nutriment she can furnish me,though at the risk of endless iteration.I milk the sky and the earth.
