The closest a person can come to describing the experience, the essence of things, our wild side, our Walden… because all of us carry inside that same spark of Universe of what Thoreau wanted us to participate.
“To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts. Every man is tasked to make his life, even in its details, worthy of the contemplation of his most elevated and critical hour.
(…) 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.”
Henry David Thoreau, “Walden; or, Life in the Woods”
