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… 🙂

“The only thing that stands between you and your dream is the will to try and the belief that it is actually possible.” – (Joel Brown)….

I Had A Dream…

In history’s past, on the path, I had a dream
Of a world in harmony it did seem,
Accepting one as to who they believe and are
One’s life’s choices no one did bar.

Free to climb a mountain, to touch a star
Free to search the universe, where answers are,
Free to venture through life, with open mind
Another’s belief, it did not blind.

Free to boldly walk the lands, both far and near
To lives one’s life without suffering or fear,
Not to be accepted by belief, gender or race, you see
But by the love, understanding and knowledge of a spirit born free.

Children could follow their own dream, you see
Not to be denied by another’s ideology,
To follow the destiny of their own choice
Not to be hindered by another’s voice.

I still have that dream, you know
A dream that began a long time ago,
A dream without end, each and every day
Until the winds, they all blow away.

(Larry “Dutch” Woller)

Hello Diary,

Have been busy with dreams and life’s challenges and change.. thought I would stop the earth, briefly get off and share a few thoughts… 🙂 … were asked a time ago “If I had the opportunity to be someone, who would I like to be?”.. my answer, of course, were “ME”… 🙂 .. that being said, threw caution to the winds and started the new laptop over the weekend…


It works!.. now all I have to do is learn how to use it… “If you think you can, you can. And if you think you can’t, you’re right”. (Mary Kay Ash).. and learn I will … “No road is too long for him who advances slowly and does not hurry, and no attainment is beyond his reach who equips himself with patience to achieve it.” (Jean de La Bruyere )

Yes, have been busy with changes but may have to curtail the activities somewhat as summer has not given up yet and it could get quite warm for the next few days…
“Hazardous Weather Outlook
National Weather Service Lincoln IL
Unseasonably warm conditions are expected Tuesday through Thursday, with afternoon heat index values well into the 90s each day.”

I believe this ole bushytailed knucklehead squirrel may have the right idea…

Though Hunter S. Thompson may disagree with him… “Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming; “Wow! What a ride!” ( Hunter S. Thompson)…

I believe I will go with the squirrel… get me a glass of white and relax… “Worrying is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to do but it doesn’t get you anywhere” (Author Unknown)…


Turn on some smooth jazz… “Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” (Plato)… 🙂 ..

Find me a chair on the deck outdoors…


And watch the girls walk by (and others).. “For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others;
for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness, and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.” (Audrey Hepburn)… 🙂

Well, enough rambling for now.. need to venture on down the path, life is calling.. “Everyday one has choices, either to venture into the light, follow one’s dreams and live life, or stay in the shadows, the darkness and not know happiness…” (Larry “Dutch” Woller) .. 🙂 but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…

Yes, life does put challenges in one’s path in some manner from time to time, can make the journey a little bumpy at times… the universe knows I am not into religion but I believe there is a saying “God promised you a safe landing, he did not say the journey would be a smooth one”…. the condensed version for us born again heathens.. “That’s Life”.. 🙂 🙂
