Concord has been the home of many great American thinkers and writers like Louisa May Alcott, Henry David Thoreau, and Ralph Waldo Emerson to name a few triple monikered locals.
From the center of town, a path weaves out to Walden Pond. While we're in the middle of another snow storm right now, there was a perfect coating of snow on the woodland trails.
It was unseasonably warm for the Northeast - over 40 degrees F - but people were still out on the pond ice-fishing. We kept to solid ground and walked the entire perimeter.
It was a bit slippery, but we managed to make it around the Pond.
We then headed back to the site of Henry David Thoreau's cabin. The structure has been gone for centuries, but the ideas of connecting with nature and living deliberately thrives. We have one chance to enjoy as much of life as possible, so go outside, look at the stars, and eat that cake / cheese / wine.
