3 Nov 2017 Walden, The Construct (Drawing and notes) and Guardians of the Galaxy music

Hello to you.  How are you doing?  Well I am happy to say I got some rest and got further along in the Henry David Thoreau’s Walden book.  A couple of quote so far that resonate:

“The cost of a thing is the amount of what I will call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.”
Henry David Thoreau, Walden    

“We are all poor in respect to a thousand savage comforts, though surrounded by luxuries…for our houses are such unwieldy property that we are often imprisoned rather than housed in them.”
Henry David Thoreau, Walden

“The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation. What is called resignation is confirmed desperation. From the desperate city you go into the desperate country, and have to console yourself with the bravery of minks and muskrats. A stereotyped but unconscious despair is concealed even under what are called the games and amusements of mankind. There is no play in them, for this comes after work. But it is a characteristic of wisdom not to do desperate things.”
Henry David Thoreau, Walden

The drawing this morning happened while spending some time with my David Bowie CD collection.  It’s Kyle’s fault.  He pulled up the Guardians of The Galaxy music on You Tube and it inspired me to revisit some of the older music I have.  As a treat, books and music are our idea of treats, we will probably be buying the sound tracks to the two Guardians of the Galaxy movies – great collection of music!
