Prophetic words from a visionary who would be 200 years old next year. The National Park Service turns 100 years old next month, and Walden Woods now has more than two thousand protected acres surrounding the pond.
I begin this morning's circumambulation of Walden's shore with these milestones in mind and eyes open.
|Bright morning sun meets clear water, and the dance of light in the pond begins another day.|
|A still green frog remains vigilant|
