„I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practice resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms, and, if it proved to be mean, why then to get the whole and genuine meanness of it, and publish its meanness to the world; or if it were sublime, to know it by experience, and be able to give a true account of it in my next excursion.“
— Henry David Thoreau- „Walden“
One of my beloved qoutes of HDT , yes i went to the woods , as often at the weekend , having a walk with my dogs . This time i took my camera with me, the weekend before i saw a few people collecting mushrooms. I spoke to them and they showed me their „harvest“ and how they consider , which one of the mushrooms is eatable or not. I was fascinated , about these „flowers of the forrest“ and decided to make next time pictures of them, here you can see my „Harvest“ !
If you take a step off the road , life offers you always a surprise , you´ve got only to open your eyes , amazing ^^
have i mentioned? I love these bagpipes and especially this song – Flowers of the forest
