Place of pilgrimage …

‘This Is Where Mark Twain Is Buried” by Kathryn Olvera.

I’m fond of Twain, of course, but my literary pilgrimages were in honor of the New England Transcendentalists. When I first read Emerson’s “Self Reliance” one cold and sunny February morning, it seemed to me to be my own personal declaration of independence. So I have been to Emerson’s house, and Wakden Pond.
