A Word or Two about my First Commitment to my Reading of Emerson

While I had resolved myself to reading Emerson deeply, I had not expected to find myself meditating and reflecting so deeply on individual passages of his writing. I assumed it would be more like me reading an essay and write a summary essay in response. However, what I find is that his writing is so powerful so frequently that I am just as frequently compelled to expression from it; which is why you find my written responses to my reading so focused on and specific to only single passages or even just a sentence or two.

This is a first for me. I hope you don’t mind.

          1. Last FYI about your new friend. I painted quotes on my stairs when we moved in over twenty years ago. He made the third step, “when you are angry for a minute, you lose 60 seconds of happiness.” I’ve needed to hold onto that one over the years.
