“Don’t walk in front of me… I may not follow, don’t walk behind me… I may not lead, walk beside me… and be my friend” (Albert Camus ) 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  🙂 ).. 🙂

Thought before I would start the day, I would take some time, with a cup of tea, to contemplate the tomorrows….  🙂

 

 

Who am I, one wonders
Whether it is race, gender or ideology,
As I venture down life’s path
As a spirit that is born free..

Wondering about being different
Reminds me of words from a song,
Where do I fit in, one would ask
One wonders, where do I belong.

Does the image without
Determine who I am to be,
Even though the spirit within
May be different, be me.

Do I follow my heart’s dream
When heart and mind disagree,
Or do I listen to the mind
While dealing with reality.

Those questions and more
Life’s puzzle to unravel,
To find answers I am seeking
Down the path I must travel.

So I shall  continue down the path least traveled
To seek that rainbow, perhaps around the next bend,
Once found, I’ll have my answers
And that will be the beginning, not the end.
    (Larry “Dutch” Woller)

Hello Diary,

Well, my friend, in the past I have shown some of the lovely little flowers that are overlooked or looked down upon and ridiculed…there are other flowers that are a part of the gardens here on the path and they too are different and live in harmony with all on the path… I had thought about cutting a bouquet but rather than destroy the beauty of the flower, thought I would make a bouquet in pictures… 🙂

 

The Lilac.. 🙂

The Clematis… 🙂

The Hibiscus.. 🙂

The Daylily.. 🙂
The pond lily.. 🙂

And the rose… 🙂

A bouquet of flowers from my garden,
Their beauty need not be told,
Their fragrance is soothing and lovely
A pleasant scent for one to behold.

They remind me of you, my friend
Whose beauty from within you do share,
With sunshine, understanding and laughter
Sowing the seeds of  love and happiness in the air.

This bouquet was picked for you
For coming into my world, my friend,
For sharing sunshine, laughter, love and happiness
For which I know  will never end.
   ( Larry “Dutch” Woller )
“A single rose can be my garden… a single friend, my world.” (Leo Buscaglia)… 🙂

Well, I had better close for now, life is calling and I had better go see what it wants… but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂

 

 

Until we meet again…

May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
The rains fall soft upon your fields
May green be the grass you walk on
May blue be the skies above you
May pure be the joys that surround you
May true be the hearts that love you.
    (Irish Saying)

  1. I love that Camus quote on being beside someone as an equal, as a friend. And your first poem here is beautiful, capturing perfectly the unknowns and mysteries and questions in life as we search for answers.

    Such pretty flowers! I think I especially love the roses. I’ve always had a soft spot for those.

    Keep walking the path least travelled & rockin’ it. You have a beautiful soul & you really are incredibly talented with your writing 💙

  2. Albert Camus had the idea that there is darkness and there is light. On one side, his books portrayed the Nazis, Caligula, the plague, but on the side of light is, for example, Dr Rieux who stays behind to help people.
    We all have to choose which side we are going to be on, and, hopefully, work to fight evil.

  3. Thank you for sparing the flowers and sending them out into the world in pictures! I love every one of these songs. Who would have imagined anyone could improve on “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” but both versions are wonderful!
