Celebrate Thoreau by following his lead with the enthusiastic Renee Silvus! Henry walked 3-4 hours daily, observing the immediate world and taking extensive field notes. He then expanded these notes into journal entries - all material for future lectures, essays, poems, and books. We’ll first review some of Henry’s walking techniques. Then we’ll walk and take notes in our very own woods. We’ll return inside for warm drinks and a study of ways to turn notes into writing. Participants should bring a hat, pencil, pen, and journal/notebook. Wear comfortable shoes and something with pockets. Renée Silvus brings a blend of perspectives as an educator, therapist, and coach.  She taught high school English for 17 years across 5 schools and 2 continents.  Reading and teaching Thoreau has been one of her biggest influences. She recently visited Concord, MA to collect Thoreauvian material and inspiration for Idaho events and a playbook. Read more at reneesilvus.com.
