I am writing down my reveries for myself alone. If, as I hope, I retain the same disposition of mind in my extreme old age, when the time of my departure draws near, I shall recall in reading them the pleasure I have in writing them and by thus reviving times past I shall as it were double the space of my existence. In spite of men I shall enjoy the charms of company, and in my decrepitude I shall live with my earlier self as I might with a younger friend.
Jean-Jacques Rousseau-Reveries of the Solitary Walker

Reading a walk each morning, thanks Spencer/Ellen!
