“Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow them.” (Louisa May Alcott) 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 🙂 ).. 🙂 A day to contemplate tomorrows and browse the memories of yesterday… 🙂

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
Ohhhhhh, the dreams had I,
To save the world from the dragons
Once, as a  Marine, I did try.

I once loved 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 loved 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,
For now, I must close, and seek out Fate
For Fate has the answer, Fate is the key.
     (Larry "Dutch" Woller)

As Edith Piaf once sang; Non, je n’ai aucun regret (No, I have no regrets ) … 🙂 Hello Diary, Change is taken place here on the path, bringing in the new (phone)..

But we are not getting rid of the old, for it too has a place… 🙂

Technology aside for the moment, it is a Sunday morning and time for tea, mediation and contemplating the tomorrows… 🙂

A peaceful Sunday Morning, watching the sunrise
Thoughts abound, whiled sipping a spot  of tea,
While taking in Nature's outdoor portrait
Contemplating, on what Fate may have in store for me.

Change is slowly coming, it whispers in the winds
The door is slowly closing on past history,
With a new awakening with the mind and heart
But the future is still shrouded in mystery.

With freedom of being different, in many ways
No social shackles do this mortal wear,
Do welcome change with open mind and heart
No fear, no worry or dread do I bear.

Does change stop at mortal death, one wonders
Or does it go on forever and ever,
Will I ask the same at another time and place
Somewhere past the 12th of Never?.

Will my thought and spirit continue
When, as in all things, time comes to an end,
Or does all things cease to be when
To the grave, the mortal body Fate does send.

Alas, but must deal with the present, this Sunday
So now will store thoughts and musings yet to be told,
For it is down the path least traveled I do venture
To search and hopefully find, what life and Fate may behold.

And at the end of the path lies the rainbow from where I will find my answers… 🙂 Alas, shall close for now “There is no real ending. It’s just the place where you stopped the story.” (Frank Herbert), but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t’ rise…. 🙂 Ahhhhh, browsing through the memories, thanking those were the days!!.. 🙂

  1. Those were the days indeed! On another note, I often find Sundays to be a day of memories and reminiscing. I’m not sure why, maybe it’s linked to my childhood or maybe it’s just because Sundays tend to be quieter.

    What a calming and uplifting post. I especially love this part in the first piece: “But no white flag of surrender here, With a heart of dreams to do much more.” So powerful and full of hope!

    Enjoy the rest of your Sunday & take good care of yourself – I hope the week ahead treats you kindly 🤗

      • Aw no, I’m sorry you’ve had problems commenting on my blog. Is there anything I can help with? All I do know is that you can’t comment on InvisiblyMe through the reader, you have to go directly on the blog via your internet browser because it’s self-hosted & with a paid for theme. Bit of a pain in the bum for people!

        I hope you’re finally able to enjoy your Sunday for rest and relaxation after a busy week! xx

        May you always walk in the sunshine

        Right beside your front door.

  2. My mother loved, “You’ll Never Walk Alone.” I believe her spirit lives on and that yours will too. Maybe the more spiritual someone is in this life, the stronger their spirit will be after this life. But we do need to appreciate and be in this life fully. Thank you for “Rainbow/Wonderful World.” I LOVE that version. Be well!

      Do not stand at my grave and weep
      I am not there, I do not sleep
      I am a thousand winds that blow
      I am the diamonds glints in the snow
      I am the sunlight on ripened grain
      I am the gentle autumn rain
      When you awaking in the morning hush
      I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight
      I am the soft star that shines at night
      Do not stand by my grave and cry
      I am not there, I did not die
      (Mary Frye)

      Until we meet again..

      May love and laughter light your days,
      and warm your heart and home.
      May good and faithful friends be yours,
      wherever you may roam.
      May peace and plenty bless your world
      with joy that long endures.
      May all life’s passing seasons
      bring the best to you and yours!
