I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately

 
 
 

This is one of my favourites blogs to visit on a Sunday afternoon. Visiting this blog reminded me of Richard Proenneke, a naturalist who lived for almost thirty years in the Alaskan Wilderness.  While living there he recorded his experiences on 8mm film. Those films have been reproduced and represent hours of calm, reflective viewing. 

"Alone in the Wilderness" is the story of Dick Proenneke living in the Alaska wilderness. Dick filmed his adventures so he could show his relatives in the lower 48 states what life was like in Alaska, building his cabin, hunting for food and exploring the area.

 
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.
— Henry David Thoreau
