“It is not the size of the dog in a fight that matters, it is the size of the fight in the dog”.. (Mark Twain) 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 🙂 )

It is a Wednesday and I browsed the news, so much hate, anger and ridicule… not so here on the path for love overcomes all and will not be denied… not only in deeds but words… 🙂

A Kipling I know I’m not, dear one
I know that from the start,
No eloquent words here, my love
Just words of love, from the heart.

Nothing cute or fancy,
No false charmers words are there here,
But words of love for you
From my heart, my very being, my dear.

Couldn’t find the words….search sprit and mind
Hoping those precious words would appear
Then came wonderful, precious moment
For there, in my heart they were, my dear…

Now that I have the words
What’s this ole country boy to do,
How will these arthritic hands, my love
Say those precious words to you.

It will have to be done right, you know
And I know I will find a way,
To say how much I Love You more
With every heartbeat, each and every day.

There will be no falsehoods or lies for you, dear one
No meaningless empty words, cute or clever,
For I would rather you love me for just one day
Than to hate this ole country boy forever.
( Larry”Dutch” Woller )

Listen to your heart, be yourself, who you are from within and pay no heed to others, for being you, as you are, you’re unforgettable… 🙂

Hello Diary,

Some storms on the horizon and not just the world society… 🙂 taking a few moments to share some thoughts, no hate, anger, fear or ridicule here, only love… flowers are about love and will share some from the gardens along with some thoughts I had penned in history’s past…

A garden bouquet for you, my love
Each bloom has been chosen in hopes to convey
Thoughts of happiness and joy
With my message of love this day.

Daylilies…“ Love is a beautiful journey, where every step is a destination and every moment an eternity” (Apoorve Duby)

water garden 1

With a red Carnation,
To show how my heart aches for you,
Posies of Forget-Me-Nots,
To show my love is true.

Honeysuckle..“Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart.” (Roy T. Bennett )


And fragrant Freesias,
Embracing trust we share
With Lilies of the Valley,
Returning happiness and care.

Peonies..“Just because you feel someone does not love you as much as they should, does not mean they don’t give you all the love they have”..


Daisies to show,
My love is loyal – undivided,
As the Phlox whispers softly,
Our spirits are united.

Rose..“You don’t love the person you can live with, you love the person you cannot live without”…

rose, heirloom climber

And I’ve added Primrose,
To remind you again
That I can’t live without you,
And with you I’ll remain.

Hibiscus..“True love doesn’t happen right away; it’s an ever-growing process. It develops after you’ve gone through many ups and downs, when you’ve suffered together, cried together, laughed together, loved together.” (Ricardo Montalban)


And all about this bouquet,
Are sprigs of Baby’s Breath, sown
So delicately displayed
With a message of their own.

Water lily…“While you’re busy looking for the perfect person, you’ll probably miss the imperfect person who could make you perfectly happy” (Author Unknown)..

white lily

So with this bouquet, my love
I shall eternally bestow
A heartfelt message of love,
Even these blooms seem to know.
(Larry “Dutch’ Woller)

“Love knows no bounds or time, love is the spirit of the heart, love is the life support of hope, love is the force behind compassion, love is the foundation for true friendships, relationships….without love, life is barren and cold and has no meaning”…. (Larry “Dutch” Woller)

“Portrait of a Friend”

I can’t give solutions to all of life’s problems, doubts,
or fears. But I can listen to you, and together we will
search for answers.

I can’t change your past with all it’s heartache and pain,
nor the future with its untold stories.
But I can be there now when you need me to care.

I can’t keep your feet from stumbling.
I can only offer my hand that you may grasp it and not fall.

Your joys, triumphs, successes, and happiness are not mine;
Yet I can share in your laughter.

Your decisions in life are not mine to make, nor to judge;
I can only support you, encourage you,
and help you when you ask.

I can’t prevent you from falling away from friendship,
from your values, from me.
I can only think of you, talk to you and wait for you.

I can’t give you boundaries which I have determined for you,
But I can give you the room to change, room to grow,
room to be yourself.

I can’t keep your heart from breaking and hurting,
But I can cry with you and help you pick up the pieces
and put them back in place.

I can’t tell you who you are or who you will be
I can only love you and be your friend
(Adam Clarke)

Better close for now.. have some dreams to follow while dealing with life’s challenges…. but I shall return one day with my fingers doing the walking and my heart doing the talking, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂

Ignore the fears in your mind, be yourself, follow the love in your heart with a dream in your pocket.. for if you could see yourself the way I do you would realize how wonderful you truly are… 🙂

    • You are welcome and thank you for stopping by and glad you enjoyed the visit… hope you get bouquet every day and life is all that you wish for it to be…. 🙂


  1. so much hate, anger and ridicule—true, but I think we will find what we seek. I’ve consciously decided, in the past three years to disengage from all such posts. I’d rather add to the sum-total of goodness and cheer in the world–love your posts for doing the same!


    • Thank you for stopping by!.. yes, there is a great deal of hate and anger but is more good if one looks for it…. I believe of one has only negative thoughts, one will only find negative things…. 🙂
      Got your Gazette in the email, haven’t had an opportunity to browse through it yet, thanks for sharing!!.. 🙂
