I love this shot by photographer Lisa Cohen. You can almost feel the mischief….it completely reminds me of my two girls – I could only imagine what they are planning under there.
Write On and More is celebrating the new Autumn season by honoring one of America’s first environmentalists, Henry D. Thoreau…
Henry David Thoreau lived in Walden Woods for two years, two months and two days in a cabin he built himself. He recorded his experiences in extensive sketches and diaries published in 1854. Walden, or Life in the Woods, became the inspiration for a new mode of life started on a little pond in New England. Few places in the world embody such a rich blend of ecological, literary, and cultural history. The American environmental movement had its roots in Walden Woods.
When in 1990 Walden Woods was threatened by commercial development, recording artist, Don Henley founded the Walden Woods Project to preserve the land that inspired Thoreau through environmental literacy and stewardship. In honoring Thoreau and the Walden Woods Project, Faber-Castell introduced a rollerball pen made of salvaged wood from naturally fallen ash trees in Walden Woods.
Faber-Castell donates a portion of the proceeds to the cause of preserving Walden Woods and enabling American Forests to plant a tree for each pen sold.
Each pen is inscribed with a passage from Thoreau’s ” Writings.”
H. D. Thoreau
Only 2,006 pens were produced and each one is individually numbered. This fine precision instrument is prized by collectors and would make an exquisite gift for those who appreciate the historical and cultural impact of Thoreau.
Hold history in your hand and help protect an American legacy. A limited number of pens are available at Write On and More. EHW
Mosaic artist, Angie Heinrich creates a beautiful line of intricately detailed mirrors. Heinrich sources her materials from around the world that include: Italian smalti (a classical mosaic material), 24k gold, marble, vitreous glass, hand-painted glass and beads.
