In Walden Pond Henry Thoreau found a setting which inspired his famous musings on the nature of existence and the foibles of his society. Photographer Jones and writer Thom take similar inspiration from the hill country in Southern Indiana where they live and work and in consort provide a beautiful and insightful meditation on the meaning of place, the values of rootedness and community, and their different but similar paths toward personal harmony and spiritual understanding.
Jones sees beyond the surface of nature to the basic elements - earth, air, water, and rock. His photographs are "contemplative studies on the metaphysics of nature, the invisible made visible, God's mind revealed," the pre-existing harmony which exists in nature if only we can see it.
Thom's text, taking its inspiration from Jones's images, traces the cycle of his life from birth in rural Gosport, to journalism in the big cities of the world, and then back home again, where he found both his voice as a writer and his spiritual rootedness.
