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 🙂 )..
“The man who follows the crowd will usually get no further than the crowd. The man who walks alone is likely to find himself in places no man has ever been before.” (Francis Phillip Wernig )…. 🙂
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 another 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“.

With the life’s obstacles, weather, climate change or the virus thingy, seems a good number of people are at home or place of resident in today’s world… and with Easter observation (along with others) on the horizon, staying at home seems to impact those with religious ideologies…they are unable to visit churches, mosques, synagogues, etc…
Well, there was a time when those buildings did not exist, there was a time when there were no organized religious ideologies, no religious leadership… BUT, people still had a belief…. As the Chaplain told my late wife just before her passing “it is what is in the heart that is important, not a name above the door”… one does not need a building or a leader to believe in something…. as has been done for centuries, one can believe at home, perhaps better than anywhere else… 🙂
As the world knows, I am not into religious ideologies.. If I were so inclined, my home and garden would be my cathedral, the sky would be the roof…
The birds and other backyard friends would be the chorus…
And while everyone is different in appearance and thought, they would sing in harmony..
And, of course, this song is always on the program, right Ray?… 🙂
So you see, Diary, one doesn’t need a building or someone telling one how and what to believe, all one has to do is follow their heart no matter where they are at… “Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart.” (Roy T. Bennett )… 🙂
And speaking of following, the sun has rose, adventures are on the horizon, so had better close and follow my heart on down the path.. But I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂
Yes, Diary, for whatever reason you may be confined to home, simply follow your heart and perhaps follow the advice of the Seekers…
