Thoreau’s quote about reflections

Succinctly written with a profound message from Thoreau. Written in his journal May 5, 1852 when he was 34 years old, he wrote the following:

“I succeed best when I recur to my experience not too late, but within a day or two; when there is some distance, but enough of freshness.”

Welcome to my blog! My name is Esther and I'm so happy you are here. I'm an avid nature photographer and a daydreaming thinker. My posts revolve around photos of nature's beauty, homeschooling adventures with my 2 kids, sporadic reflections on my child's heart condition, Bible reading reflections, gardening feats, and other mish mash things. Hopefully you'll leave encouraged, pensive, or smiling at the simple things of life. Thank you for stopping by and hope you'll find some interesting posts to read!

    1. Thank you! I found the image on Pexels; usually it takes me a while to find an image that feels right. But this pic just stood out to me. I’m glad you like it too.
      Have a great weekend and hope the homeschooling journey is going well. It’s coming to a close soon.
