Books and Nature

I started reading On Man and Nature, by Henry David Thoreau, a few months ago, and although it is short in pages, and it is long/drawn out in some areas, I did enjoy reading Thoreau’s illuminations.

I am a fan of Henry David Thoreau’s work,and this particular book left me curious wondering as to some of his perspectives.

I found this on a friend’s bookshelf, and borrowed it.

My walk by the river took me through an area with lovely trees, shrubs and greenness against the background of the sky.

What can I say about Andy Goldsworthy. I absolutely love his artistic endeavors, encompassing nature, rock/stone, leaves, twigs, etc., creating breathtaking wonders.

Walking on a sunny day, I saw these rocks, almost in formation.

  1. Interestingly, I also have recently been re-inspired to re-read some works by Thoreau, John Muir, Rachel Carson, and others. As an adolescent and young adult, I was utterly inspired by these lovers of nature and am so grateful for their messages that we need so desperately to heed today.
    …. I also love Andy Goldsworthy’s amazing work! ☺️
