My Happy Place

The lakes are something which you are unprepared for;
they lie up so high, exposed to the light, and the forest is
diminished to a fine fringe on their edges,
with here and there a blue mountain,
like amethyst jewels set around some
jewel of the first water, - so anterior,
so superior, to all the changes that are to
take place on their shores, even now civil
and refined, and fair as they can ever be.

-Henry David Thoreau
