I thought 'no more posts' on this 'blog', until my son called me today, and told me all about enjoying SELF RELIANT by Ralph Waldo Emerson. He said: "Hey, mom - I said to myself...I'm related to this guy..."
Yes, that's true; we're fortunate to have a few of Emerson's letters - a few books, and photos that we all cherish.
My son, Thomas, reminded me that Emerson was the first
American author that really addressed all aspects of human life; life itself,
and his writings are held in high regard by many to this day.
Well, I figured I should 'bone up' on that book since I'd read portions of it years ago. To my delight, I found it right here - thanks to the I-net...what a joy!

Emerson was a wise sage. Interestingly enough, although related through our mother's side, this writing has the insight that our father understood. The depth and vision....thanks be to the SOUL!
