"Every mourning was a cheerful invitation to make my life of equal simplicity, and I may say innocence, with Nature herself. " (ch.2-14)

I've had some trouble through the first read of the essays to really get into it and understand. I felt like it jumps around a little to much for me.

The quote above made me imagine Thoreau taking a deep breath and starting each day fresh and simple. Something that many individuals, especially those in the big cities, forget how to do.
Thoreau is telling us another reason why he lives in the thick of nature. It seems like it is his haven where he can experience all that Nature has to offer.

My question about the early part of this chapter, is he wandering the country side spending time at each property for a time trying to decide if it fits?
