Dark Orpheus, I think we can all relate. Litlove, writers' journals can be fascinating reading. Something to get you psychoanalytic juices flowing ;) Dorothy, I had to read the passage a couple times to make sure he really said 40. It really is amazing. We've gotten lazy in out modernity. Heather, you are absolutely right!

I'm amazed at the walking people could do -- 40 miles is SO FAR -- I consider myself a good walker, but 20 miles is about my limit. I've read of other people from the time walking distances similar to Emerson's, and I find it hard to believe.

Lovely Emerson quotes (you really do almost convince me to read writers' journals!) and I DO like the sound of Grub. That quote is hilarious. Reminds me of when I tried to run away from home aged 6, but had to abandon the project because I couldn't carry enough books with me!

"Several hours later, she had moved thirty-seven books into her room and still had to go back for a dictionary." - I FEEL for her. Really, I do. Hee :)
