Dinner with Walt - all things Walt Whitman

Whitman in the Redwoods!

Just returned from a trip to the redwood forests in California, those amazing forests are such a spiritually-magnificent place!

Of course I took along my Leaves of Grass, I always take Whitman’s advice, he said in the preface to the 1855 Leaves of Grass…

…read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life…

I want to share one my favorite images from this trip, reading in the redwoods. Look at how the light radiates off Leaves of Grass, Whitman was definitely with me in those redwoods!

    I could definitely see Walt Whitman sitting along side you gazing longingly at the towering redwood trees. Lovely photo!

      Hi Cheryl, thanks for the comment! I’m glad you like the picture as much as I do. Whitman never visited the redwoods, but he did write a poem about the redwoods!
