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… 🙂

Change is in the air while venturing down the road least traveled… 🙂

Destiny sits upon the morning horizon
Always in site, but never clear
And as I travel along the road I have chosen
Destiny remains forever in place
Sitting upon the morning horizon

But as the years pass
And the road spans the distance
Between yesterday and tomorrow
I know my destiny will arrive

For time alone will close the gap
So yesterday becomes dust filled memories
And the horizon of tomorrow
Will be the road of today

For then, there will be no yesterday or tomorrow, only today
And when that day arrives
I will find peace and be complete
For I will be one with my destiny

Who would know what lies ahead?… only time… 🙂

Hello Diary,

It is a pleasant day here on the path, air filled with peace and quiet… a gentle breeze bringing about a subtle change to the path (and perhaps everywhere)… the first change I noticed and have no control over is Spidey moving to a new location…..

spidey a

Apparently the last location wasn’t to his liking.. 🙂 while I do try to watch for the webs, especially this time of year, I almost ventured into this web and only seen it because I could see Spidey… 🙂 .. “Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or it is nothing.” (Helen Keller)

Another change I have noticed over the last few days is the disappearance of birds… other than a occasional squirrel or rabbit, the feeders are bare… Hmmmmmmmmmm… 🙂

empty feeder

Now, the larger birds come and go, especially the migratory birds, but the sparrows and others generally stay year around… do have an occasional bird but for the most part there is not a bird to be found, it’s quiet enough to hear a pin drop… that is not normal… 🙂 …

There are two changes to the path I do have some control “For time and the world do not stand still. Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or the present are certain to miss the future.” (John F. Kennedy)

The first being driving… the ole auto has been a part of the family for near 19 years…

But like all else, the auto’s time clock is winding down…. over time I have done research and considered my options… environmental, economical, possible future health issues, etc and found no justification to continue driving…soooooooooo, after 59 years, in the near future will bring a part of history to a close… “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” (Dr. Seuss).. 🙂

Another change taking place is technology.. “The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom”. (Isaac Asimov).. it seems that Microsoft will no longer support Windows 7 starting the middle of January 2020, sooooooooo I either go the way of the dinosaur or change… unlike others, change I will.. “The man who follows the crowd will usually get no further than the crowd. The man who walks alone is likely to find himself in places no man has ever been before.” (Francis Phillip Wernig ).. 🙂

The new laptop…

Will spend the next few months getting the laptop up and running..will be able to use the other technology to some degree, just will be unable to venture online with the old technology…

Just a few of the changes here on the path… “Everyday on the path least traveled brings change, that change presents a new challenge, mentally and physically… as to how to accept it and deal with it, determines what I am to become, generates an excitement about living a second of time and looking forward to what the next second of time brings, a day filled with adventure and mystery.” ( Larry “Dutch” Woller )

Change is possible but only if you want to.. 🙂

Well, better close for now.. thought I would share a few thoughts before venturing down the path… but I will return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise.. 🙂

Change can be a challenge, difficult at times but here on the path there is a dream… “Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird, that cannot fly.” (Langston Hughes)

The change is rapidly approaching
As I contemplate the tomorrow,
Leaving some memories filled with happiness
A few memories filled with sorrow.

I peer out my window
Parts of the world, cold and bleak,
A world of conflict, anger and hate
Mortals are suffering as I speak.

But we have a dream
Martin Luther King and I,
That one day there will be peace
No more mortals will die.

And there will be hope
Of a world filled with love one day,
A wish that could come true
For hope is the last to die…they say.

Not a world of race, color or gender
Nor closed minded ridicule or prejudice…you see,
But a world that respects another’s dream
Of what or who they wish to be.

So I peer out the window
Not with sadness or a tear,
But a heart filled with hope and a dream
Of a world of love and peace, not hate and fear.
(Larry “Dutch” Woller)

  1. Change is inevitable; keeping up with change can be very challenging. Like you, I’ve also had to upgrade to the latest Microsoft operating system. Since I haven’t the time to learn all the new developments, I get frustrated when I encounter problems when setting up a new document.

    Letting go of your ole faithful auto will be a big change for you, especially if you don’t have easily accessible, low cost, public transport. I don’t drive, but I live in an urban area with reliable bus service. Problems arise when I have to attend events in faraway places.

    Enjoy the peace and quiet while it lasts 🙂

    • Thank you for visiting!.. 🙂 yes, change in technology can be difficult which is why I will be taking time to learn and program the new laptop, can continue using old system until January..

      As for the auto, I drive it to the post office every two weeks (1 1/2 blocks away) just to keep the battery charged, etc…otherwise it sets in the driveway gathering dust… 🙂

      As for those faraway places, where there is a will there is a way… 🙂

      With each day being unique and a new adventure, no matter the circumstances I enjoy each day because it won’t come again… 🙂

  2. Thoughtful post with quotes and poem to greet the changing seasons, Larry! ❤ Our 2002 Cavalier's rust has been repaired by hubby and we're hoping it will live on another year or two–inspection due in October, so time will soon tell its story. My laptop (Acer with Windows 7) will need to be replaced before the new year opens gets underway. Change is always blowing in the wind, but we'll keep dreaming our dreams! Blessings and love…

    • Thank you for stopping by and your kind words… glad you enjoyed your visit!!… 🙂

      Until we meet again…

      May the sun shine all day long
      Everything go right, nothing go wrong
      May those you love bring love back to you
      And may all the wishes you wish come true
      (Irish Saying)
