And just having a look at what Henry David Thoreau was writing in his journal on 24th December 1841:
I want to go soon and live away by the pond, where I shall hear only the wind whispering among the reeds. It will be success if I shall have left myself behind. But my friends ask what I will do when I get there. Will it not be employment enough to watch the progress of the seasons?
Now playing: Jan Bang, Erik Honoré – Uncommon Deities. (With David Sylvian, Sidsel Endresen, Arve Henriksen, John Tilbury & Philip Jeck).
