“Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird, that cannot fly.” (Langston Hughes) 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 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 🙂 )..

Yes, in history’s past I peered into the sunlight and I had a dream… 🙂

me dream

In history’s past on the path I had a dream
Of the world in harmony it did seem,
Accepting one as 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 eyes and mind
Another creature’s belief, will not blind.

Free to boldly walk the lands, both far and near
All the while following ones dreams, without fear,
Not to be accepted by social ideology, you see
But the love, kindness, knowledge within, of a spirit born free.

Free, for ones humanity to embrace
Not being labeled by belief, gender or race,
Free, for one’s dignity not to be denied
Though there’s many a mortal, who has tried.

Here on the path it’s not a dream, but a reality
To follow ones dream, with a open heart, you see,
Free to love another without fear, as it should be
For here on the path, one is born free.
(Larry “Dutch” Woller)

Now, I cannot carry a tune in a bucket, but… 🙂

Hello Diary,

Looked out the window last Wednesday morning and it appeared it looked like the North Pole… 🙂

wednesday 2-26-2020

And because I had most of the technology up and running, decided I would work on some important technology.. For over 10 years I have participated in a program created by the University of Berkeley call BOINC, there are many participating all over the world.. 🙂

boinc

What the program is about is using BOINC Manager, it allows reputable participating groups to use home computers to analyze data and there is a long list… anyone can do it if one wishes too… 🙂
What transpires is if one agrees to participate in the program, one downloads Manager and the selects the program on wishes to participate in…now, one has control over Manager to prevent over use, etc… once set up, Manger will download a certain amount of data, my computer will analyze that data and Manager will return the results, download more data on my PC and the process repeats itself and it is ongoing until I stop it… 🙂

One project is World Community Grid and Mapping Cancer…

world grid

Hopefully in time cancer will no longer exist… another project is Setihome…

setihome

It deals with the exploration of the universe and hopefully tell us where we have been, where we are going and what awaits us… another I use from time to time deals with climate change…

climate change

There a a few others that I work with from time to time also…. 🙂

I know my efforts are small compared to the big picture and because I ask for nothing in return, it is something like a small gift from me to the world… “I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.” (Stephen Grellet)

The gift of hope
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.

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

The gift of freedom
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.

The gift of happiness
Not a world of sorrow or fear
But a world of hope and dreams, not sadness
A world of eternal love and peace
A world of eternal happiness.

The gift of love
A love that is without end
Through an eternity it will endure,
A love that knows no boundaries
A love beautiful, caring and pure.
(Larry “Dutch” Woller)

Why do I do this one would ask?..because that is the way old friends do…. 🙂

Well, I had better close for now… life and that dream is a callin’.. “Life is complicated and not contained to a few ideologies or beliefs, therefore in order to better understand the universe, and me, I need to leave safe harbor, with open mind, and explore all of the universe, not just parts of it..…” (Larry “Dutch” Woller), but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…. 🙂

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)

Yes,love, peace and happiness, a wonderful world indeed… 🙂

  1. Dutch, it’s amazing and admirable the ways you’ve found to contribute to the betterment of humanity 🙂

    Enjoy your winter landscape. I’ve just read that the people in Moscow are seeing very little snow this winter due to record high temperatures since December 2019.

    • Thank you for stopping by!.. it is a small step but perhaps added to other small steps it can create a impact… anyone can do the small steps in their own way… “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” -(Maria Robinson)… 🙂

      Hope today and all your tomorrows are filled with love and happiness and life is all that you wish for it to be… 🙂

      May flowers always line your path
      and sunshine light your way,
      May songbirds serenade your
      every step along the way,
      May a rainbow run beside you
      in a sky that’s always blue,
      And may happiness fill your heart
      each day your whole life through.
      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
