Thoreau Almanac

We leave this back page to a continuing series of quotes from Henry David Thoreau,
paired with a Concord scene... both applicable to the season.





"I see many devil's-needles zigzagging along the Second Division Brook, some green, some blue, both with black and perhaps velvety wings. They are confined to the brook. How lavishly they are painted! How cheap was the paint! How free the fancy of their creator!"

Journal; July 5, 1852
many splendid dragonflies


Second Division Brook is in West Concord near Damon Mill.
