Wonderful Walden

"It is no dream of mine,
To ornament a line;
I cannot come nearer to God and Heaven
Than I live to Walden even.
I am its stony shore,
And the breeze that passes o'er;
In the hollow of my hand
Are its water and its sand,
And its deepest resort
Lies high in my thought."

'Scuse me, is it furry Friday, yet?

Please excuse my lack of posts and visits, folks. It's that crazy time of year in the office, and I just can't wait for it to be Friday. I felt bad that I didn't have a treat for this furry squirrel found in the Boston Public Garden the other day. Right after this shot was taken, he was spooked by an approaching dog, and ran away as fast as squirrelly possible.
