Diary from the path least traveled…
Good Sunday morning, Diary….another quiet Sunday morning on the path as most migratory birds have ventured back south, leaving mainly the little sparrows and squirrels, and they are not out and about yet…mortal man is not out and about either and a pleasant gentle breeze…a sunrise view outside my “office” window (the third bedroom changed into a office 🙂 )….
A better view outside the office without the clutter…
A peaceful Sunday morning and while gazing out, sipping on some tea, words came to mind while daydreaming abut the future and wrote a poem…
Contemplate and Wonder…
A peaceful Sunday Morning, watching the sun arise
Thoughts abound, while sipping on a spot of tea,
While taking in Nature’s summer portrait
Contemplating, on what Fate may have instore for me.
Change is slowly coming, it whispers in the winds
The door is slowly closing on past history,
With a new awakening with the mind and spirit
But the future is still shrouded in mystery.
With the freedom of being different, in many ways
No social shackles do this mortal wear,
Do welcome change with open mind and spirit
No fear, no worry or dread do I bear.
Does change stop at mortal death, one wonders
Or does it go on forever and ever,
Will I ask the same at another time and place
Somewhere past the 12th of Never?
Alas, but must deal with the present, this Sunday
So now will store thoughts and musings yet to be told,
For it’s down the path least traveled I do venture
To search and find….what life, and Fate, may behold.

Had a busy week last week, taking care of business and preparing for the future.. decided I would make some changes to the tub/shower unit..had thought about it for some time now knowing that someday I may not be able to get into and out of the tub easily….I had made such modification for others in the past while working for a contractor..so, gathered up tools, etc and modified the tub as it has never been used at a bathtub…
Have the fiberglass kit and paint ordered and when the weather is pleasant and I can open the windows for good ventilation, I will finish up..no more stepping over the side of the tub…another future project I will do is ramp the walkway from the deck over the pond…
It will be easily done and can use materials at hand… I am one of those that looks to the future and prepares for the storm before it arrives, not wait till it gets here… 🙂 if and when the day comes I get old and feeble, can continue on.. 🙂 well, that’s about all for today, Diary…a peaceful relaxing Sunday today while contemplating the tomorrows and preparing for chores next week… will leave some thoughts by others before I go…
“Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.” Jim Rohn
“My dreams are my dress rehearsals for my future.” David Copperfield
“For time and the world do not stand still. Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or the present are certain to miss the future.” John F. Kennedy
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. “ Mark Twain.
And with that shall say bye for now, Diary, and venture on down the path least traveled..follow my dreams, but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…at least, as Yanni says, until the last moment…
