You Are What You Read
When Thoreau simplified his life down to his basic needs, freeing himself from civilization, he still brought his library with him to Walden Pond while also creating another book to pass along - the food for his thoughts.
Densely packed in the pages are the intellectual lives of individuals - the varying disciplines of experience - delivering thoughts for the next generation to build from. It’s emotional travel - being led into the wilderness naked and reemerging in a fine suit - all the details that make up a character.
They’re a place without borders, the hard climb of investigation into the lifted clouds of imagination. It’s as healthy of an exercise as eating right - planting thoughts along the way and seeing what everbearing conversations will feed and satisfy.
We like to put our hearts on our sleeves at Canoe Club. The conversation builds from our individual interests and combines with our mutual respect - all the big and little stories that creates the culture that we’ve chosen.
Together, we’ve assembled a small collection of some of the inspirations we’ve experienced during those quiet moments of loud thoughts, when the pages spoke and the eyes listened - some of the fine points that we’re excited to share.
