I Went to the Woods

June 5, 2012

Voila, this is the Wandawega Tree House (featured on the The Lettered Cottage) – also known as heaven on earth. For those who know me, I am obsessed with climbing trees. I do it practically every trip that I go on. Perhaps I’ve watched Fern Gully and Avatar too many times because I literally want to live in a tree. I remember sitting in my American Literature class as a junior at Texas and listening to my professor read Thoreau’s Walden, and the words resonated in my soul.

“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.”

Isn’t that beautiful?
