This one told me it’s name on an early Saturday morning, the day after it was born 🙂
Fresh back from Massachusetts and it’s hard to describe just how special that part of the country is. So much of our nation’s history birthed right there and the home to so much inspiration. Writers we love like Emerson, Alcott, Hawthorne and Thoreau gathered there over a hundred years ago exchanging new ideas and inspiring each other.
It’s a good place to breathe deeply….
It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.
