What can one say but "Thank-you," Lance. An essay that honors Emerson in its writing as well as its intent and subject.

The "Finish each day..." quote is part of a collage with which I have decoupaged the top of my working desk. On the wall, about eye level when I'm standing up, a print made for me by an artist friend who has a distinctly Emersonian bent, the simple message -"Sit Back Down."

I like the graveyards in Cambridge. Some notables there. Was surprised to see intellectuals from different eras near each other... like Margaret Fuller and F. Buckminster Fuller. Were they related? I dunno.

It's also a cool streetscene hanging out at Harvard Square, and digging through the archives at the Harvard and Radcliffe libraries was pretty cool, too.


That's a good question, Kev. I don't know if Bucky and Margaret are related. I've been to that cemetery. She's not there, you know. They didn't find her body after the shipwreck. Thoreau went down to help look.

Leah, thank you. And Sit back down is good advice for a writer.

Of course, stand up and run away as fast as you can is good advice sometimes too.
