Diary of the journey on the path least traveled..just letting the heart do the talking while the fingers do the walking while being different, being me… 🙂
( “I do not do, say or write something to been seen or heard… I do, say or write something because it needed to be done, said or written…” , no nominations please, just sharing thoughts while exploring life 🙂 )
Journey of Self Discovery…
I awoke one morning, alone, in history’s past..
Left with a heart full of memories, a decision to make,
Confronted with two paths to my destiny..
Heart and mind to decide which one to take.
Take the one most traveled, the logical safe choice…
The one chosen by the multitudes..the human race,
Like sheep, following a path determined by another…
No self identity, all bearing the same face.
A path whose direction is chosen by a few
The rest to follow, ever so blind,
Their destiny not chosen by their own hand
Their fate determined, by a closed mind.
The other path less traveled, mysterious and unknown
Where one can be different, like me I confess,
Without fear of ridicule, bigotry and hate
A path filled with love… and happiness.
A path where one can follow ones dreams
An open mind to see what others do not,
To live a life guided by one’s heart
While the other path one cannot.
Decision made, with eyes on the horizon
It’s down the path least traveled I do venture,
Excitement fills the air, a smile on the face
Looking forward to a great adventure.
My fate will be unknown, what lies ahead unsure
I do not know…. what my destiny will be,
But one thing will be certain, written in stone
I shall venture down that path …..learning to be “ME“.
(penned by Larry “Dutch” Woller)
After a time of dealing with life’s challenges, sometimes one needs to stop the world and get off briefly to set the spirit free.. One way is meditation and another way is to relax with a glass of wine or cuppa tea..
Turn on some easy listening music..
And let the spirit go free to either follow my thoughts..
So my heart’s compass is pointed to the horizon
Sails set full, safe harbor fading in the distance, a faint glow to eye it seems
And with a pocket full of memories, on the horizon are my dreams
On down the path least traveled I will venture, with spirit free
Why the path least traveled?..well, I’m different, don’t you see.
( Larry “Dutch” Woller )
Mark Twains thoughts…
“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, acquire new friends and gain knowledge of yourself and the world.” (Samual Clemens aka Mark Twain)
Or Enya’s thoughts…
However, unfortunately today is not the day for sailing… with the onset of summer there are maintenance tasks to do outdoors as well as indoors adding more challenges to life, and add daily chances of thunderstorms to the mix and “When one suddenly finds oneself in a swamp up to one’s armpits in alligators, it is difficult to remember the objective was to drain the swamp”.. 🙂
First there is mowing…
And there is the vacuum …
Both require a certain amount of physical activity to function.. I know the medical profession believes everyone should be active but a mower and vacuum could be overkill.. 🙂 I had considered asking the teenage boy next door if he would do it but he uses Alexa and Alexa does not do lawns or windows… 😀
And then I happen to come across this interesting device…
I have misplaced the owners manual so I have no idea how to use it… 😀 I suppose I could Goggle it.. “Any piece of knowledge I acquire today has a value at this moment exactly proportioned to my skill to deal with it. Tomorrow, when I know more, I will recall that piece of knowledge and use it better. “ Mark van Doren .. 🙂
And then there is this unique invention called the washing machine…
It has more controls than a space shuttle.. how difficult is it to wash a load of underwear, really!?.. “The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom”. (Isaac Asimov).. 🙂
Well, I had better close for now… got out the ole two headed coin and will toss to see if I mow or chase rainbows… 😀 but, I shall return again one day, fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂
Neither rain, nor sleet, nor gloom of night, here on the path I have a dream to see me through it all… 🙂
