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… 🙂
( “I do not do, say or write something to been seen or heard… I do, say or write something because it needed to be done, said or written…” , no nominations please, just sharing thoughts while exploring life 🙂 )
After a week of adventures and dealing with storms (weather and life), this Sunday I decided to relax and browse the memory banks (mine, not the PC 🙂 )… sooooooo, with the sunrise, a spot of tea and eyes to the horizon I thought about the “good old days”.. 🙂 took time to pen some thoughts..
As I gaze upon the horizon
Where my Fate waits for me,
My mind gently browses the past
That which has become a memory.
I grew up on a farm
Ohhhhh, the dreams had I,
To save the world from the evil dragons
Once, as a ole Marine, I did try.
I once loved and and lost
Suffered a broken heart, they say,
But now the heart has mended
As love managed to find a way.
With my hands I helped build a nation
Now the back is tired and sore,
But no white flag of surrender here
With a heart of dreams to do much more.
There were those by whom I were scorned
As I ventured down life’s highway,
They ridiculed and condemned
As I lived and love life my way.
Of the life I lived, I have no regrets
Would not change a thing, I must confess,
And I will continue to be me
As I venture down the path of happiness.
As my mortal clock starts to wind down
One wonders, is there another life for me,
Sooo, I must close, and seek out Fate
For Fate has the answer, Fate is the key.
(Larry “Dutch” Woller)
Ahhhhhh, the memories, too many to count… 🙂
Yes, it has not always been a smooth journey on life’s highway for ole Dutch, but every morning I know happiness by having my dreams in my pocket and following my heart because “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)… 🙂
Happiness is to have loved
Than have not loved at all,
To share love with another
To always heed one’s heart call.
Happiness is to follow one’s dream
To be who one wishes to be,
To live one’s own life one’s own way
Not live the life of another, you see.
Happiness is always waking up on
The green side of the grass,
Even though the day may be stormy
Knowing it too shall pass.
Happiness is knowing another
A understanding, caring friend,
Someone to share life’s memories with
A friendship to never end.
Happiness is to pen thoughts
Let the fingers do the walking,
Thoughtful words that come from within
Because the heart does the talking.
Happiness is knowing when to end a poem
For it is down life’s highway I need to venture,
To gather more memories and thoughts to share
As I live, and enjoy, tomorrow’s new adventure.

Well, I had better close for now… need to bring my thoughts to and end, the path is calling, more adventures lie ahead… but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂
Yes, for me technology is a “road”, a path I take that leads me to new and exciting places all over the world… places where all my friends and acquaintances live and we share memories, thoughts and adventures that is music to the heart and spirit… I cannot wait to get on the road again…. 🙂
