The light that dwells


It suggested to me that there was something to be seen if one had eyes.  It made a believer of me more than before.  I believed that the woods were not tenantless, but choke-full of honest spirits as good as myself any day — not an empty chamber, in which chemistry was left to work alone, but an inhabited house — and for a few moments I enjoyed fellowship with them.  Long enough I had heard of irrelevant things; now at length I was glad to make acquaintance with the light that dwells in rotten wood.

-Henry David Thoreau, The Maine Woods

I read these pretty words last night.  And wanted to share.

Wishing you an inspired day…
