Collage 68

I recently read "A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers" by Henry David Thoreau. One of the great themes he writes on is friendship: "Of what use the friendliest disposition even, if there are no hours given to Friendship, if it is forever postponed to unimportant duties and relations? .... and even the utmost good-will and harmony and practical kindness are not sufficient for Friendship, for friends do not live in harmony merely, as some say, but in melody. We do not wish for Friends to feed and clothe our bodies... but to do the like office to our spirits..." -- Lynn
