I was doing my walking meditation around Walden Pond one day this past winter when I came upon a park ranger who is a friend of mine. She asked me what do I say when asked if there are any transcendentalists living in Concord today? I said I’m one. Thus began a conversation that resulted in my giving a forty five minute talk on being transcendentalist today at the new Walden Pond Visitor’s Center on the Sunday afternoon of April school vacation week. Here is the link to that talk if you are interested in how a modern transcendentalist engages Concord’s wildness.
