“And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” (Abraham Lincoln ) on the path least traveled…

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 🙂 )

Woke up this morning on the green side of the grass (not under it) a free spirit with a open heart.. 🙂

Just Color Me A Free Spirit….

I’m just a free spirit
Open mind and heart is all I’ll ever be,
Don’t need much money
Being rich is not for me.

I have a pocket full of dreams
My fate, has yet to be told,
As I sail from safe harbor
While watching my destiny unfold.

I am not in a “box”
No social chains, you’ll see,
As down the path least traveled
Adventure waits for me.

Not interested in a “image”
Reality is my forte,
I am who I am, leaving no stone unturned
Exploring life each and every day.

Waking up to a world born free
With creatures in their daily rush,
Pursuing their own destinies
Before sunset brings, the evening hush.

The morning air smells clean and fresh
As I awake, it always brings a smile,
Can hear the sound of a distant train
That will travel many a mile.

Yes…just color me a free spirit
For most social graces I do not fit it seems,
No matter, as I choose happiness over ideology
Guided by my heart, as I follow my dreams.

(penned by Larry “Dutch” Woller, )

Hello Diary,

Yes, woke up this Tuesday morning on the green side of the grass to enjoy the day, and life… more storms on the horizon for tomorrow… but neither “fears, nor rain, nor sleet, or gloom of night will stop any adventures.. 🙂 “Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart.” (Roy T. Bennett) … thought it might be best to share a few thoughts…

Pleasant weather this morning, ventured out before sunrise to check the weather instruments (as I do every morning no matter the weather) and guess what, Spidey, the spider, is baaaaaaaaaaack!…

Fortunately I had my flashlight with me so I didn’t venture into the web… here is another photo without the light….

Yes, Spidey has the ambush set up for a unsuspecting creature trap..

“Will you walk into my parlour, said a Spider to a Fly;
‘Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy.
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I have many pretty things to shew when you get there.
Oh, no, no! said the little Fly; to ask me is in vain:
For who goes up that winding stair shall ne’er come down again.
(Mary Howitt )

Of course, in the daytime Spidey takes the web down…

Sooooooooooo, no one knows where Spidey is at, hiding in his glen, to come back another day… 🙂

As I browsed the news as of late, I cannot help but wonder about a element of world society and their obsession (belief) about obtaining wealth, sometimes at all costs.. I suppose that is a part of being closed minded… “I would rather have a mind opened by wonder than one closed by belief” (Gerry Spence)… as for me, I am far wealthier than they can ever hope to be.. 🙂

I’m far richer than the rich
Wealthier than the wealthy by far,
I have gold in the sun
I have silver in the star.

I have dreams that I follow
That are more precious than gold,
As I venture through life
Eagerly watching, the dreams unfold.

I have diamonds, too many to count
With each new fallen snow,
As I see each one sparkle
While basking in the suns glow.

The mornings bring nature’s painting
Priceless, a portrait of the sky,
Impossible to duplicate
Even though many did try.

Each bloom of the red rose
A ruby, one of a kind,
With the bloom of the white rose
A pearl comes to mind.

Money have I little
But wealth I have got,
But I don’t fit in with
The wealthy and rich lot.

But I’m not going to change
A wealthy dreamer I’ll stay,
Until the rivers, they all run dry
Until the four winds, they all blow away.

(Larry “Dutch” Woller )

Well, I had better close for now.. will be eagerly awaiting to vision what dreams have instore this evening, will usually have two choices; venture into the light and live and enjoy life or stay in the shadows, the darkness and never know true happiness, the choice is clear.. 🙂 but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…

Not sure what awaits me at the “finish line of life” “ I am currently attending the School of Life, learning more about the universe and me… and Graduation Day will be the day of my funeral and it is then I will know if I failed or I succeeded and graduated”… (Larry “Dutch” Woller).. but the journey will be done my way.. 🙂

    • Thank you for visiting and your kind words!… 🙂

      Until we meet again;
      May dreams you hold dearest
      Be those which come true
      And the kindness you spread
      Keep returning to you.
      (Irish Saying)
