Keep on Your Own Track

Every path but your own is the path of fate; keep on your own track then.
–Henry David Thoreau

Thoreau was born on this date in 1817.

Getting off the beaten path in Michigan can lead to a window to a world of still waters and silent woods, where dappled light plays across the forest floor.

Bold Winds Speechless

But, as we often see against some storm
A silence in the heavens, the rack stand still
The bold winds speechless, and the orb below
As hush as death, anon the dreadful thunder
Doth rend the region.
—William Shakespeare, Hamlet

Summer storms in Michigan approach “anon the thunder.”
