“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson) 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  🙂 ).. 🙂

Spring has finally arrived, creatures large and small and plants are waking up from winter’s doldrums and preparing for new adventures… 🙂

 

 

I’m watching the sun come up
With a spot of tea in my hand,
Thoughts passing like a gentle breeze
As I gaze upon the land.

Thinking about my garden
As I watch the squirrels at play,
Will this be a good year?
With nature being kind...day by day.?

Or will it be like last year
A struggle both day and night,
Hoping for a better day
With every morning’s light.

Love is in the air
Carried by a gentle breeze,
In the notes of a birds song
As the melody,..gently,.. drifts through the trees.

The time has come to make ready
To plan and to prepare,
Even though it’s cool outside
A taste of spring, and love,  is in the air!

Or is it just me………….. 
           (Larry “Dutch” Woller, )

Yes, birds, bees and creatures large and small have joined their voices in harmony and the garden is alive with music.. 🙂 Hello Diary, Yes, spring has arrived in the garden here on the path, where all the inhabitants live in harmony, each one a one-of-a-kind, unique piece of the puzzle called “life”… (photo taken last summer)… 🙂

A Not So Secret Garden

I live in a not so secret garden
Along the path least traveled,
Quite unlike the other world
A world that has become unraveled.

A garden of peace and harmony
Being different does not matter here,
All creatures, big and small, living together
Unlike the other world,  they do not live in fear.

Free to boldly walk the lands, both far and near
To lives one’s own life without suffering or fear,
Not to be accepted by belief, gender or race, you see
But by the love, understanding and knowledge of a spirit born free.

Together we live the hand that Fate has dealt us
Not sure of, or dwell, on our final destiny,
But live to enjoy the moment, the hour, the day
That is what life is about, don’t you see.

So into the not so secret garden I will venture
Along the path least traveled, 
To find love, understanding, to follow one’s dreams
Unlike the other  world unraveled.
                       (Larry “Dutch” Woller  )
Love and understanding, no hate, fear or prejudice in the garden on the path… 🙂

Well, I had better close for now, unfortunately I cannot convince my backyard friends to change the bed or do the laundry… 🙂   but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂

 

 

Until we meet again…

It is not just another  day
For in spite of time, distance or whatever,
If only in spirit and thought
We’ll be sharing today together.

So, have a wonderful day
Wishing you all the best, nothing less,
May today, every day, AND your heart
Be filled…...with love and happiness.
    (Larry “Dutch” Woller)

      Until we meet again..
      May your day be touched
      by a bit of Irish luck,

      And warmed by the smiles
      of people you love.

  1. I was happy when I saw a post by you in my inbox, for I knew that here I would find something to lift my spirits … and I was right! Yes, spring has come here, too, and we are enjoying it while we can … before the arrival of the hoard of cicadas that are expected later this month! We’ve had beautiful crocuses, and a few days ago the dandelions popped their gorgeous bright heads up. The squirrels have been to visit and to devour the peanuts I put out each morning, and the birds to partake of the birdseed. Today I saw a beautiful cardinal! I absolutely love your t-shirt and must find one! Thank you, Dutch, for lifting my spirits.

      May flowers always line your path

      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.
