~Good to know~

Ralph Waldo Emerson was a Transcendentalist poet and essayist, who wrote some beautiful essays and poems. He was born on May 25, 1803 in Boston, Massachusetts.
Young Emerson suffered from skin problems, perhaps eczema, which he referred to as “salt rheum.” A doctor recommended curative baths, which Emerson’s father took to an extreme, forcing him to swim in salt water even though he was afraid of the depths.
So good to know!
