“I am what and who I am, venturing down the path of life, following my dreams, chasing rainbows and leaving safe harbor with sails set full, to boldly go where I have not been before”… (Larry “Dutch” Woller) 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… 🙂

In today’s world society with all the naysayers, deniers and closed minded individuals it is difficult for one to ignore the fears and doubts…. I, for one, have turned a deaf ear to them and instead listened to Lena Horne and Steve Jobs… ladies first.. 🙂

If you believe within your heart you’ll know
That no one can change the path that you must go
Believe what you feel and know you’re right, because
The time will come around when you say it’s yours

Believe there’s a reason to be
Believe you can make time stand still
You know from the moment you try
If you believe, I know you will

Believe in yourself, right from the start
You’ll have brains, you’ll have a heart
You’ll have courage to last your whole life through
If you believe in yourself, if you believe in yourself
If you believe in yourself as I believe in you (Lena Horne)

“Your time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinion drown your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary” (Steve Jobs )

Hello Diary,

Fortunately have managed to avoid any severe weather…. Life puts many types of storms in ones path, the weather being one of them… hopefully those that have to deal with the hurricane do not have to suffer and have plenty of help… the extreme weather the world has been experiencing is do to the change in the climate, change of which mankind is responsible for to some degree..

Here on the path things are being done that will hopefully help others to help the world… “The life I touch for good or ill will touch another life, and that in turn another, until who knows where the trembling stops or in what far place my touch will be felt.” (Frederick Buechner )..

One method is ordering online and having it delivered to my door…

package

On a personal level it reduces cost, I can eat healthy and reduces waste.. environment wise it reduces gas emissions, dependence on fossil fuels, and energy consumption (refrigeration, etc) as I can store in the cupboards, pantry, etc…

cupboard

By ordering many different food types, and using the ole head for something other than a “hat rack”, I can prepare and enjoy a multitude of meals much like the chicken, vegetables and dumplings with mashed potatoes… 🙂

chicken dumplin

I also ordered two new “boogie boards”.. they remind me of the ole chalkboards…. 🙂

boogie board2

I use them to take down notes etc… again, on a personal level it reduces the cost of buying paper, it is delivered to the front door.. Environment wise, reduces gas emissions, dependence on fossil fuels and energy consumption and no one has to cut down a tree… 🙂

And speaking of trees, I am a avid reader..now I have a few paper books that were purchased many years ago but over time made changes also.. while there are many types of media available, I currently have two (actually three) Kindles, two a 7 inch Paperwhite and the other a 10 inch Fire…

kindle b

I use the Paperwhite for reading and the Fire for backup and other uses… I have my entire library downloaded on the Paperwhite and the Fire which I can access without getting online.. Currently there are over 1200 books on both the Paperwhite and the Fire… on a personal level it reduces cost (the books are less expensive), I do not need to be concerned about storing the books and delivered to my front door…again environment wise, reduces gas emissions, dependence on fossil fuels and energy consumption and no one has to cut down a tree… 🙂

There are other small things I do around the home also… just some examples of what one can do to help deal with climate change without sacrificing ones life and dreams… that being said, I know it may not be for everyone but there may be little things one can do that may seem small at the time but loom large in the big picture… “Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” (Barack Obama )

Just venturing down the path hoping to do some good so others can follow their dreams.. there will be challenges ahead but we have high hopes, right Frank?.. 🙂

I had better close for now, rambled on enough… have some more planning to do and dreams to follow…but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…

Yes, the ole mortal clock is slowly winding down, BUT I am being me and doing it my way on the path least traveled and if that makes me different, I’d rather be different.. 🙂

And why do I wish to be different, you may ask,
The freedom to choose, to explore, to learn a lot,
Dictated to by a prophet chained to a myth…. NOT
Maybe so everyone can shout and point at me,
And say, “Hey, he’s different”, don’t you see.

My mind is clear and open, gathering knowledge every day
My spirit is young, adventuresome and floating free,
Not confined by those social chains, no box, no mold for me
I am what I am, I am me, what I wish to be,
Perhaps that makes me different, don’t you see.

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.

    • Thanks for stopping by!.. I too have some 60+ paperbacks (before Facebook and Amazon 🙂 ), however, as I gaze about my humble abode, to find storage for 1267 books is not a option, so as in life, changes must be made.. 🙂
      I am keeping a watchful eye out for your book..
      Have a wonderful day today, and everyday, filled with peace, love and happiness…
