Dear Diary Page 4…
The following poem is that which inspired me to proceed as I am doing now… it actually is about “indecision”…but also popularly thought of as taking a path few, if any, ventures down…I combine both with a supposed quote by David Crockett “Be sure you are right, then go ahead”.. So putting indecision aside, making sure I am right (at least for me, smile), do travel down a path least taken by many, I suspect, exploring, learning new things, not falling into a trap of “close mindedness” created by some in a society that, as quoted by Anais Nin, “Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.”
So, setting sail, leaving safe harbor, on down the path least traveled little Bree and I go, looking to the horizon, not sure where it will take us or what wonders lie ahead, but take it we will… Fate be willin’ and the creek’s don’t rise….
The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost….
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Will be awhile before we return here again, will be spending some time dealing with life, but return we will, Fate be willin’ and the creek’s don’t rise…
