“I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident; that all men are created equal.” (Martin Luther King, Jr.) 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

 “Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.” (John F. Kennedy)…. 🙂
  
 Winds of Change…
  
 I watched that heavy door begin to close,
 all the while the winds above me rose.
 The years whisper and whistle back into my ear,
 the memories haunted by sorrows and fear.
  
 With a new day it finally dawned on me,
 the past needed locking and I had the key.
 Leave it behind, leap and fly away free,
 let the winds of change blow and carry me.
  
 Feel them lifting my wings now able to soar,
 up to an open sky and caged no more.
 Flying so fast to where no hurt can find,
 a place of peace now inhabits my mind.
  
 This heart full of courage never ceases to beat,
 knowing my history is not destined to repeat.
 Clear paths now lead me to a new destination,
 for my life, my future and the next generation.

Yes, change is taking place here on the path and even though “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, anyone can start today and make a new ending.” ( Maria Robinson ), but only if you want to… 🙂 Hello Diary, Tomorrow is Monday and is a holiday celebrating Matin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, and his dream, a dream that lives today here on the path…. 🙂

Taking a brief break from following dreams, thought I would share a few thoughts… have been busy preparing for new adventures once leaving safe harbor, as Jimmy Buffet said “I don’t look back too often, there is too much in front of me I wish to see”… 🙂

 

 

My last visit I mentioned hopefully helping others follow their dreams.. that also goes for my backyard friends who are with me while dealing with life’s challenges… there is always the squirrels… 🙂

And, I cannot forget my feathered friends… 🙂

And, after taking care of my friends, after having luck baking bread, thought I would try my hand at making a sconce… so, I gathered up some Bisquick cheese and garlic batter and topped off with some bacon bits… 🙂

Popped them into the toaster/convection oven and Voila!.. 🙂

Now, I know that they are not going to win any baking prizes, but they sure taste good with a bowl of soup… 🙂

On a cold winter day…. 🙂

 

 Yes, changes have been made, mind and heart at the ready, for… 🙂
  
 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 )
  
   
And with new adventures awaiting on the horizon, the sails are at the ready, the compass set, fingers poised at the keyboard and it is down the path I venture… 🙂

And with that, I believe I shall close for now…. going to follow Enya’s advice, but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂

 

 

With all the conflicts and anger in world’s societies at the moment, think I may get off the path briefly and join my friends on the peace train for a time, what do you say, Diary, all aboard?… 🙂 And perhaps we can share some love with others along the way… 🙂
