Reflections in Springtime: Type Z -Sabot, Cognac

Buongiorno a tutti!

My mood today is again contemplative.  While yesterday, I thought of yesterdays past, today I am thinking of only today...of how I want to live from this day forward and of all the things I want to do (the list, at least in my head, is lengthy, but I am thankful for the dreams).  I want to live with purpose, and not wander aimlessly like I feel I had in my misspent youth; and I am brought to the words of  Henry David Thoreau whose words from Walden; Life in the Woods so accurately encapsulate my sentiment.  Enjoy!

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practice resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartanlike as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms, and, if it proved to be mean, why then get the whole and genuine meanness of it, and publish its meanness to the world; or if it were sublime, to know it by experience, and be able to give a true account of it in my next excursion. For most men, it appears to me, are in a strange uncertainty about it, whether it is of the devil or of God, and have somewhat hastily concluded that it is the chief end of man here to 'glorify God and enjoy him forever.
