"No mortal is alert enough to be present at the first dawn of spring".- Henry David Thoreau
Spring is one of the most beautiful times of the year. Different fruits and vegetables are streaming through the ground and from the limbs of trees. Summer is near. In the book Walden by Henry David Thoreau, it is now spring. Thoreau says that his long slumber/hibernation period is now over and that he needs to get working. Thoreau does tasks such as cutting wood, collecting supplies and most importantly seeing nature again, because after being cooped up for a number of months, he must readapt to his surroundings. While completing all of these tasks and writing all of this down, you would think that thoreau would not have enough time to right about anyone, or anything else. Wrong. Thoreau manages to weed in, people who he hates regardless of the situation. Thats what makes people hate him, but at the same time, thats why we just can't stop reading him. Thoreau basically thinks that by expanding your knowledge to boundaries never gone past before is bad. Implying that shrinking the world is a bad thing and to let things go unseen and to make the world feel real again. Thoreau is a phenomenal writer and I cant wait to see what he does next.
