Bring Your Radical Naturalist to Work Day

My roommate Marianne didn't sleep well last night. She's also been reading The Last American Man. It's about Eustace Conway, a present-day Thoreau who owns a thousand acres of pristine wilderness and lives in a teepee in the woods full-time. He's remarkably committed to reconnecting kids to nature, but he's also highly eccentric, and many of the people who are drawn to his ideals are repelled by his personality.

I emailed Marianne to ask if she had any idea why she couldn't sleep. She wrote back:

I was hot. Also I kept dreaming that I had to bring Eustace Conway in to work with me today, and it was stressing me out.
