Thoreau, 200, July 12

Born on July 12, 1817, Thoreau would be 200 next Wednesday. He made such a large impression on so many hearts and minds, especially for someone who lived so locally and died so young.

I found this interesting article posted at Paris Review, while having coffee at the end of an urban bike ride yesterday.

Me for the woods! Such a wonderful summation of his legacy by Robert Frost is remembered by the essayist in Paris Review, along with words about the importance of getting lost.
