Minding My Own Small Business

Modern-day Americans are increasingly learning to respect the spirit of the Native American peoples in the land throughout this country. Likewise, I think many locals and visitors sense how the land around Concord holds the legacies of the 19th century transcendentalists like Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and the Alcotts. That time period was not so long ago. My intent with linking back to it is to underscore our common bonds in the continuity of life and help us connect with our own place in history/her-story wherever we are. As each generation leaves its imprint of human toils, travails, and triumphs, I offer this design to promote Thoreau's message of peace, rather than militant conquest. The t-shirt also makes a statement to recognize the importance of adapting through, and being agents of change and do whatever we can to create a better world.

Thoreau and Yoga

Link to full article

As a modern-day yogi, I saw the connections between Thoreau's life--as evidenced in his actions and his writing-- and that of a yogic lifestyle. Yet, I had no tangible prior knowledge of his interest in yogic writings and philosophy. My intuitions were confirmed when I read that “Thoreau was likely the first American to entertain seriously the possibility of identifying himself as a yogi.”, according to the religious studies scholar Richard Davis. In Thoreau, we have an excellent example of what karma yoga--the yoga of selfless action--looks like. Read this interesting article by Jeremy David Engels.
