Favorite place in my imagination
Stretched out in our 1928 Old Towne Canoe drifting across Upper Sysladobsis in the Maine Wilderness.
Favorite places on earth
Cross Creek Ranch, Alta WY; Thacher; Middlebury College; The Governor's Academy; Pine Mountain Lodge to Fishbowls; Red Reef Trail; sailing out of the Merrimack River into the bold Atlantic; the old farm in Reading, Vermont; Newburyport, MA; sailing in a westerly down along the Plum Island National Seashore and dropping the hook, swimming, having lunch, drinking in the cold water, salt air, steady breeze and warm sun. Freedom.
The book, movie, work of art, or piece of music I cannot imagine life without
Henry David Thoreau’s Life on Walden Pond.
