Author in transit

While I consider myself fairly well-read, I’ll admit to not having yet delved into (what I am told is) the genius of Thoreau – I suppose I ought to head to the library and fix that, but until then it’s good to know that one can still get a little culture from the Sunday funnies. I pulled this quote from the comic Arlo & Janis:

We should go forth on the shortest walk, perchance, in the spirit of undying adventure, never to return, prepared to send back our embalmed hearts only as relics to our desolate kingdoms. If you are ready to leave father and mother, and brother and sister, and wife and child and friends, and never see them again – if you have paid your debts, and made your will, and settled all your affairs, and are a free man – then you are ready for a walk. (Henry David Thoreau)

…and on that note, while I will be returning again, The Daily Transit will take a break this weekend. I will be traveling back to the land of ice and snow, and taking a day for rest and writing. Expect the third installment of “The Woman with the Green-Painted Eyes” this coming week.
