H. D. T. once quipped that,
“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 practise 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.”
In my life I have been lost and condensed for far too long, waiting for some type of release. While tumblr is no nature, and can not give me the same type of perspective on life that H.D.T. received from Walden, I think it offers another type of perspective; to express what has been locked inside my mind for my life.
Maybe someday, I can balance my passion, intelligence, and intuition well enough to inspire myself to be a better person, or embolden and brazen others to do the same.
Sleeping. Or going to the gym :>
