|Ralph Waldo Emerson's House|
Notes from a Visit to Concord, MA - Spring 2009
|Louisa May Alcott House|
I headed that way Sunday, May 24, 2009 for a poetry reading. Two former Stonecoast faculty were scheduled to read (except one had to cancel at the last minute - sad). Fellow Stonecoast poetry grad Carol Berg, and her husband Eric met me at the Concord Free Public Library for the event. The reading was well attended and the readers read poems from this anthology, "The Poets Guide to the Birds." It was nice to see Jeffrey Harrison, who's a really great poetry teacher.
|Walden Pond - One of my favorite places!|
Concord is an old Massachusetts town most famous for it role in the Revolutionary War and its citizens Henry David Thoreau, Louisa May Alcott and Ralph Waldo Emerson. The photo is a picture of Emerson's historical house. I took it while at the stop sign in front of it. I felt so New England-y, listening to the Sox on Memorial Day weekend while in front of the Emerson House. The Alcott house is a beautiful spot, too. I've never been inside but the grounds are very nice.
I drove to Walden Pond but didn't go into the park, since I didn't have any cash on hand for the $5.00 entrance fee. Some other time!
