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

Me 1 copy

I awoke one morning, alone, in history’s past..
Left with a heart full of memories, a decision to make,
Confronted with two paths to my destiny..
Heart and mind to decide which one to take.

Take the one most traveled, the logical safe choice…
The one chosen by the multitudes..the human race,
Like sheep, following a path determined by another…
No self identity, all bearing the same face.

A most traveled path whose direction is chosen by a few
The rest to follow, ever so blind,
Their destiny not chosen by their own hand
Their fate determined, by a closed mind.

The other path less traveled, mysterious and unknown
Where one can be different, like me I confess,
Without fear of ridicule, bigotry  and hate
A path filled with love… and happiness.

A path less traveled where one can follow ones dreams
An open mind to see what others do not,
To live a life guided by one’s heart
While the other path one cannot.

Decision made, with eyes on the horizon
It’s down the path least traveled I do venture,
Excitement fills the air, a smile on the face
Looking forward to a great adventure.

My fate will be unknown, what lies ahead unsure
I do not know…. what my destiny will be,
But one thing will be certain, written in stone
I shall venture down that path …..being “ME“.

Hello Diary,

It is a Sunday morning and stopping in briefly… tomorrow, Monday, work begins with a busy, busy week ahead with fall cleaning in preparing for winter will start today, and at the ready… 🙂

dusting...

I set here with my tea
And watch the leaves a fallin’
It’s becoming clear that one day
Jack Frost will come a callin’

Most of my bird friends have went south
In the southern warmth they’ll stay
But I’ll not shed a tear in sorrow
For they’ll be back again some day

All us creatures that are staying behind
To deal with the cold and snow
Are getting our house in order
And waiting for winter’s blow

The squirrels are gathering leaves and such
To insulate their winters nest
The possum is checking every nook and cranny
To find a place for his winters rest

The bee’s are picking up the pace
Gathering nectar with the morning sun
Storing winter food for the hive
Before their work on earth is done

A spider spinning it’s web of silk
I watched as it grew and grew
Soon to become natures work of art
With tomorrow’s early morning dew

This poem could go on and on and on
But alas, I have things to do
For, like it or not, don’t you see
I need to get ready for winter too.
(Larry “Dutch” Woller)

No dancing here next week, Andre Rieu will be setting the pace… 🙂

And that being said, will close for now, have a relaxing day and then tomorrow it is HI HO HI HO on down the path (and to work) we go…but shall return one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂

I never say goodbye because goodbye sounds like forever…soooooooooo, it is.

Good night, good night until we meet again
Adios, au revoir, auf wiedersehen ’til then
And though it’s always sweet sorrow to part
You know you’ll always remain in my heart

Good night, sleep tight and pleasant dreams to you
Here’s a wish and a prayer that every dream comes true
And now ’til we meet again
Adios, au revoir, auf wiedersehen
Good Night!

  1. Always a pleasure to drop by, Dutch 🙂 Love the uplifting musical choice from Andre Rieu and his orchestra.

    What caught my attention during this visit was the connection between your photo choice and the line in your opening poem: “An open mind to see what others do not.” I imagine that life in such an expansive landscape as yours would be conducive to an open mind to see the expansiveness of life and the limitless opportunities available for our growth.

    Have fun during your preparations for the coming winter 🙂

      • 🙂 I understand………cleaning is such an ordeal for me, not something I can quickly do and instead is a long drawn out process. But, I always feel so much better, physically and mentally when it is done.
        Bless you today and always……………
