“And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” (Abraham Lincoln) 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… 🙂

Yes, one cannot be happy unless one is happy within themselves, being who they are and wish to be, even if it means being different…and given the choice between following the crowd and being different, I believe I’d like to be different instead… 🙂

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 )

Hello Diary,

Another quiet morning to wake up to here on the prairies, storms on the horizon they say… but “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain” (Author Unknown) so it is on down the path to seek out new adventures… saw these Contrails (condensed jet engine exhaust) of man’s flying machines crossing in the sky…

Tic-Tac-Toe anyone?… 🙂 wonder if the folks wave to each other when their paths cross while enroute to their destinies… no planes here on the path but in spite of life’s challenges, venturing on down the path seeking out that elusive rainbow where the answer to my dreams lies… 🙂

It is down the path least traveled I shall go
To a rainbow filled horizon I venture,
To seek, to learn, know peace, to enjoy life
A path filled with wonderful adventure.

A place where one is accepted as who they are
A spirit kindled to life, when mortal born,
A being coming from the depths within
And not subject to ridicule and scorn.

A place where I know freedom of thought and being
I am what I am, don’t you see,
Neither this one, neither that one, but all the above
In a mortal world, a free spirit, that’s me.

I do not travel the path alone, you see
There are memories and spirits to behold,
Those that share… the joy and sadness
As I gather more memories, down that least traveled road.

So how long will my journey be, one would ask
Will I see the end of the path…ever?
The answer, I believe, lies on the horizon
Somewhere past… the 12th of Never….

So I shall bring my ramblings to an end
For there is one fact that I do know,
To reach the horizon, the 12th of Never
It’s down the path least traveled I must go!
( Larry “Dutch” Woller )

That being said, will close for now.. a relaxing Sunday planned with the Kindle and a spot of wine… life’s challenges, stormy weather and a busy week ahead… but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂

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 as I seek out new adventures… want to join me on the road of life?… 🙂

    • Thank you for stopping by and you kind words!… glad you enjoyed your visit!!.. there is enough negativity in the universe these days without me fueling the fires…. 🙂

      Until we meet again…
      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
      (Irish Saying)

  1. You’re right, to be happy we need to be comfortable with ourselves. I hate how society still dictates how we ‘should’ be, look, feel, life. How there are so many unwritten rules about how our lives need to look. There’s so much pressure and it stifles so many. We need to be free, to accept ourselves, to have the courage to walk down that path least travelled as you perfectly talk about.

    I’ll take that road trip with you, there are some lovely blue skies where you are! xx
