word crush wednesday: thoreau

so today i stared at my blank screen. i have nothing to write. it’s not true of course, if i look at my phone there will be 200 ideas just waiting. if i look at the sticky-notes app, there will be another 100+. half a foot from my hand is a sheet of paper with nine ideas on it, all long stories.

and then i remembered this one time i read a book. there was a quote which stuck out to me, though i remembered its paraphrased form. i haven’t done a word crush wednesday in months. i don’t know if it’s even still a thing.

the quote comes from thoreau’s walden, and goes like so:

i wanted to live deep and suck all the marrow out of life.
