Me trying to help lady friends get through their period.
George R. R. Martin:
“The peach represents… Well… It’s pleasure. It’s… tasting the juices of life. Stannis is a very marshal man concerned with his duty, and with that peach Renly says: “Smell the roses”, because Stannis is always concerned with his duty and honor, in what he should be doing and he never really stops to taste the fruit. Renly wants him to taste the fruit but it’s lost. I wish that scene had been included in the TV series because for me that peach was important, but it wasn’t possible.”
Spirit of Henry David Thoreau’s ‘Walden’ lives on at state park
Thoreau is perhaps best known for his book “Walden,” which was inspired by the two years he spent living simply in a self-built cabin along the shore of Walden Pond in Concord, Massachusetts.
This beautiful slice of nature still exists today in the form of a Walden Pond State Reservation. Often considered the birthplace of the conservation movement, this protected 335-acre park features hiking trails, a replica of Thoreau’s cabin and the 102-foot-deep kettle-hole pond, which is a popular swimming destination in the summer.
