Diary of the journey on the path least traveled..
(Quietly sharing thoughts while exploring the world and the universe (no nominations please)….
“I have chosen to take the path least traveled and it has made all the difference”…
It is a Wednesday morning, quiet and pleasant… my choir of birds were out in full force and in complete harmony and the skies are blue with the winds calm here on the prairie…
With low humidity, objects are much clearer and the treeline on the horizon is 4 miles away, even though it looks closer… reminds me of Sunday mornings when I sit down with a spot of tea (green with a dash of honey) and try to pen a poem…. wrote this poem one Sunday morning in histories past…
A Quiet Sunday Morning…
A quiet Sunday morning to wake up to
Sitting, gazing out, with a spot of tea,
Contemplating my tomorrows
Wondering, what will the future be.
A quiet Sunday morning, sun shining
Thinking about the path, its mysteries many unfold,
Each to explore and treasure
Soon a treasured memory to behold.
A quiet Sunday morning, birds chirping
Another day to learn and explore about me.
It is my life.. only get one chance
Will have to do it my way.. don’t you see.
A quiet Sunday morning, being different
Reminding me of words from a song,
Where do I fit in, one asks
One wonders, where do I belong.
A quiet Sunday morning, on the path
At the end, on the horizon, a lovely rainbow,
It is there my answers lie… the truth is known
Until then, only Fate will know.
A quiet Sunday morning, spirit and mind at the ready
To seek the rainbow… perhaps around the next bend,
Once found, I’ll have my answers, you see
That will be the beginning, not the end.

Were chatting about technology the other day, how some folks have become “addicted” to it, especially the phone… well, I have one phone that is probably smarter than me… 🙂
I do not carry it around with me when I am at home and I check it once in awhile to see if anyone called or left any messages, it is turned off at night… I do have it set up as a back up in case of internet failure…
I have two Kindles, with Kindle1 I do my reading and only have a few books downloaded (which I am reading or wish to read)…
I usually do my reading in the evening after the day is done when I am not doing something else…Kindle2 is my biblioteca or library…
Kindl2 has approximately 600 books downloaded on it, everything from Winnie the Pooh to Edgar Allen Poe to 50 Books You Need to Read Before You Die… now, I am femme by nature and thought so I trend towards poetry, romance and Winnie the Pooh, however do add a Hound of the Baskervilles to the mix on occasion to keep the fire of imagination burning… 🙂 I also have a few PC’s…
That being said, technology and I are not “joined at the hip”, though I do use technology from time to time…
Also chatted about the world of “difference” and all it contains… You see, the world (life) is like a meal (be it breakfast, dinner, etc)…a recipe for a meal has more than one ingredient and more than one spice… the wonderful recipe for the world (life) has more than one ingredient (people, creatures) and more than one spice (love, compassion, passion, understanding, etc)…
So, what does my technology have to do with the “world (life) meal”, one would ask?… well, I explore the world looking for all those wonderful “ingredients“ and “spices“ of the world (life) meal… 🙂 … I do this by my spirit (free of ideological shackles) venturing into cyberspace with open mind and heart, and gathering knowledge about and seeing the world through eyes and thoughts of others… as everyone and everything, in spite of differences, is a part the whole, the world (life) meal…
“Every piece of the universe, even the tiniest little snow crystal, matters somehow. I have a place in the pattern, and so do you!” – T.A. Barron
And every venture is an adventure, as I learn and see the wonders of the “third rock from the sun”, Earth…. 🙂
“I feel as though I have lived many lives, experienced the heights and depths of each and like the waves of the ocean, never known rest. Throughout the years, I looked always for the unusual, for the wonderful, for the mysteries at the heart of life.” Leni Riefenstahl
And speaking of ventures, I had better close now, have more adventures on the horizon and rainbows to chase… but I shall return one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…
Here on the path least traveled it is a wonderful world, isn’t it, Louis?.. 🙂
