Momma Jump Reads Thoreau

Momma Jump is a chipmunk.

“A straight old man…took his way… full of incommunicable thoughts… His fishing was not sport… but a sort of solemn sacrament and withdrawal from the world. “

HD Thoreau A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers

What is this life? What is conciousness? What is the process of going? What is being? Thoreau contemplates all this in this simple passage as a young man. And isn’t that a part of the journey?
