What do you hope to gain from joining us?

To expand on my love for the Transcendentalists that began in 1989 after spending a fall season in the Boston, MA area. (Part of my profile photo is from Walden Pond from that same year.) The idea of beauty, art, goodness and nature all conflating into one experience, is the inspiration I gained from these poets/writers. I look forward to ploughing through Emerson and Thoreau's wisdom together, as a group, with hopes of facilitating the passing of the torch of their inspiration into our own lives!


My background is in Art and Architecture and I have also taught English and Persian as a second language. My interest in the Transcendentalists dates to my student years when I got introduced to them via the writings of Frank Lloyd Wright.
