I don’t look back too often because “You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading your last chapter.” (Author Unknown) 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… 🙂

A wonderful day today…woke up on the green side of the grass being different with a dream in my pocket.. “Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.” (Kevyn Aucoin)

A zip-a-dee-doo-dah day indeed!.. 🙂

Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay

Hello Diary,

Have been busy with changes, mostly technical… haven’t changed how life’s journey continues here on the path.. still have the hat… “When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.” (Jimi Hendrix)…

me with pride hat..

Still have the sweater… “When we begin to build walls of prejudice, hatred, pride, and self-indulgence around ourselves, we are more surely imprisoned than any prisoner behind concrete walls and iron bars.” (Mother Angelica)

refugees

There are even rainbow earrings… “The greatest challenge in life is to be our own person and accept that being different is a blessing and not a curse”.. (Kilroy Oldster)…

finished earring

Why, there are even reference books that set together on the shelf in peace, love and harmony.. imagine that… “The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposing ideas in mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function.” – (F. Scott Fitzgerald)… 🙂

religious

How can that happen, one would ask?.. because here on the path one is accepted as being 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.
Larry “Dutch” Woller )

Well, I had better close for now… more technical work to do and there is another winter storm on the horizon so need to prepare for it… but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂

Until we meet again, hope all your tomorrows are filled with peace, love and happiness and life is all that you wish for it to be!..and

  1. Your collection reminds me of t-shirt a friend of mine has that says, “do you know me well enough to hate me?” People can make such assumptions, and pass so much judgement based on meaningless/superficial things…instead, let’s talk, and learn, and discover and…evolve! Thanks for your encouragement to this end, Dutch (if I may).

  2. This was something very different and yet perfectly related to. The choice of words and metaphors is wonderful and makes everything seem so realistic. The way how women in this society are treated and grief-stricken is completely and beautifully portrayed. I could feel my eyes moisten while reading some lines. What a masterpiece!! Kudos to you!!

    You are welcome

  3. Enjoy your positivity and realism at the same time. “Choose Life” is something I try to keep in the forefront on tough days. I see you draw some inspiration from the Torah/Bible. That phrase is in Deuteronomy. One translations is:”This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live.” I take it to mean that there will always be pain, grief, and suffering but we still need to choose life and in doing so, we pave the path for our future and those who came after.

    • Thank you for stopping by and glad you enjoyed your visit!.. 🙂 while I try to respect another persons belief/ideology, I am not into religion… I have the Bible, Torah and the Koran/Quran for reference books should they be needed while having a discussion with someone… although there may be some learning in the books if one does so with an open mind… 🙂

      There will always be some form of pain and grief as one live life, it helps determine how one deals with life’s challenges.. 🙂

      When I feel the need for inspiration I always refer to my heart and I never go wrong… 🙂

      Hope all your tomorrows are filled with peace, love and happiness and life is all that you wish for it to be!.. 🙂
