FLOATING FROM PAST TO FUTURE: Henry David Thoreau and his boat, the Musketaquid
“…We seemed to be embarked on the placid current of our dreams, floating from the past to future as silently as one awakes to fresh morning or evening thoughts. We glided noiselessly down the stream…” Thoreau, A Week on the Concord and Merrimack River
Henry Thoreau was known to have grown the sweetest, juiciest watermelons in Concord. Every year, he shared his harvest with friends and family. As we continue this tradition, enjoy a slice of melon with historian Richard Smith who will portray Thoreau at the Thoreau house replica. The replica is located next to the parking lot. This program is for visitors of all ages.
Join the Walden Woods Project, the Thoreau Society, Jhamtse Buddhist Center, and the Walden Pond State Reservation as we welcome Geshe Dondup, a renowned Tibetan Buddhist teacher who has taught Buddhist Philosophy in monasteries in India, for a series of walking mediations.
