“It is not easy to find happiness within ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere.” (Agnes Repplier ) 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

“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)… 🙂

A quiet morning to wake up to
Sitting, gazing out, with a spot of tea,
Contemplating today and my tomorrows
Wondering, what will the future might  be.

A quiet morning, life is calling
Beckoning on the path, its mysteries many unfold,
Each to explore and treasure
One day to become a memory to behold.

A quiet morning, birds chirping 
Another day to learn and explore about me.
It is my life.. only I can live it
So will do it my way.. don’t you see.

A quiet morning, of me being different
Reminding me of words from a song,
Where do I fit in, one would ask
One wonders, where do I belong.

A quiet morning, here on the path
At the end... on the horizon… lies my rainbow,
It is there my answers lie... the truth is known
Until then, only Fate and destiny will know.

Yes, a  quiet morning, spirit, body and mind at the ready
To seek that rainbow... perhaps around the next bend,
Once found, I’ll have my answers, destiny known
And that will be the beginning, not the end.
                      ( Larry “Dutch” Woller )

And because I venture down the path with open mind being led by the heart, I look forward to greeting my tomorrows… 🙂

Hello Diary,

Has been a busy week and thought I would stop the world , get off briefly and share some thoughts… with spring in the air (though still a bit cool) puttered around indoors making minor changes to finish up indoors… the one thing I have not change is a secluded area I affectionately refer to as my “sanctuary…  🙂

 

It is a place in the house where I sit and meditate and often pen my thoughts that rhyme… 🙂

A place where I pen thoughts that rhyme like what is happiness… 🙂

Happiness is to have loved
Than have not loved at all,
To share love with another
To always heed one's heart call.

Happiness is to follow one's dream
To be who one wishes to be,
To live one's own life one's own way
Not live the life of another, you see.

Happiness is always waking up on
The green side of the grass,
Even though the day may be stormy
Knowing it too shall pass.

Happiness is knowing another
A understanding, caring friend,
Someone to share life's memories with
A friendship to never end.

Happiness is to pen thoughts
Let the fingers do the walking,
Thoughtful words that come  from within
Because the heart does the talking.

Happiness is knowing when to end a poem
For it is down life’s highway I need to venture,
To gather more memories and thoughts to share
As I live, and enjoy,  tomorrow's new adventure.
                   (Larry “Dutch” Woller)

And when we are happy, we’re on fire, right Freedom Fry??… 🙂

Well, I had better close for now, may see some prairie thunderstorms later, but whether it is the weather or life’s storms, “I’m not afraid of storms, for I’m learning how to sail my ship.”( Louisa May Alcott)… but I shall return one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂

 

Until we meet again… 🙂

May the love that you give
Always return to you,
That family and friends are many
And always remain true,
May your mind only know peace
No suffering or strife,
May your spirit only know love and happiness
On your journey through life.
     (Larry “Dutch” Woller)
And… 🙂

    • Thank you for stopping by!.. perhaps it is because there are times when we follow our mind instead of our heart… “Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart.” (Roy T. Bennett )…. 🙂
