Great work on this entry. Transcendentalism is a concept that I also struggled with initially. As the lecture and the tutorials went on, I realised that it can be seen as a spiritual practice- like mediation.
Your paragraph on the convenience of modern living is very profound, especially leading into your last comments about not noticing the natural world around you, as you go about your day. What is great is that you are aware of this. Most people don’t give it a second thought. I wonder what Thoreau would think of the modern world we live in?
Keep up the good work! We’ve got this! 🙂
