bog man

I don’t know if it’s true or not, but I heard a story that Thoreau liked to submerse himself in bogs in order to feel closer to nature. I suppose I could do some internet research to find out if this story is true, but even if it’s not, I’d rather believe that it is. The image of a man going to such extremes in order to get closer to the Earth is touching.
