Happy Birthday, Thoreau and Jessie!

July 12, 1891 -- my grandmother's birthday. 

Something I recently learned,  July 12 is also Thoreau's birthday.
 A quote by Thoreau:
Words do not lose their truth by time or misinterpretation, but stand unscathed longer than he who spoke them.
The book can be found at http://www.thumbingthroughthoreau.com

The older I get, the more I love reflections and meditating. This book looks awesome!
