  3. I grew up on the Lincoln side of Walden and would bike through Concord to school, visit friends, use the town library. It was a great place to live, learn and explore.

  4. It is not always a lovely, fairy tale life in these big places in town. A few doors down from here lived the sweetest girl in school who was three years ahead of me. She went on to college, became depressed, sat herself by a lake near campus, and froze to death. She was a lovely person without a mean bone in her body. She was a day student breath of fresh air in a boarding school that could be very Lord of the Flies. Her mother ended up living alone in that huge place after her only child was gone.
    Every five year reunion in Concord I just drive by the house so that wherever she is, she knows she is not forgotten.

    1. I feel better knowing there are people like you in the world: insightful, observant, compassionate and honest.

  5. I was in Concord this past summer to see Orchard House and I saw bits of the town and it's beautiful.
