“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” (Maria Robinson) 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 and 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.
                                  (Kelly Deschler )

Hello Diary,

Taking a brief break from dealing with life’s challenges to share a few thoughts… browsed cyberspace to get an idea of what is transpiring in the world… it seems that elements of today’s world societies are determined to impose their ideology on others, often resorting to conflict and violence.. one would think that after centuries of conflict, they would realize that all they are doing is sowing the seeds of despair, suffering, hate and anger…

Here on the path we are trying a different tactic… helping and working with others in hopes that they (especially the younger generation) will realize their dreams, give them courage and perhaps will use technology  to create  “”a new ending””… “The life I touch for good or ill will touch another life, and that in turn another, until who knows where the trembling stops or in what far place my touch will be felt.”  (Frederick Buechner )…  🙂

Now, I do not share this to be bragging but to show that (unlike some) I not only “talk the talk but I walk the walk”, “I mean what I say and say what I mean”.. 🙂  and anyone can do what I do, many people even better that this ole heathen… 🙂

 

In an effort to help those less fortunate realize their dreams I am a sustaining donor to the Guardian Program of the Children’s home…. 🙂

And, from time to time help children of other countries, in this case Project WHY.. 🙂

And to hopefully ease a burden and worry I am a sustaining contributor to the foodbanks… 🙂
I am also a member of the BOINC project; Member; (since 2005 to present) BOINC Project (University of Berkeley, Calif.); Princess Margaret Cancer Center/World Community Grid (Mapping Cancer, Children’s Cancer), Scripps Institute (Cancer, Covid-19)…. They use my computer to analyze data…. 🙂

In an effort to deal with the climate, etc I have been sending daily weather observations to the National Weather Service (since September 2001)…. 🙂

And for the past few years sending daily data to the Met Office, Birmingham, UK… 🙂

And to help the students at Cornell University realize their dreams AND deal with the climate, I send observations to them to study bird habits and any changes due to climate… 🙂

I also do things here on the path to deal with climate, etc...hopefully my efforts, however small, may help those facing conflicts and life’s challenges to realize their dreams and help them make a difference and make this world a better world, a world of peace, love and understanding!...  🙂

A new say is rapidly approaching
As I contemplate the tomorrow,
Will be leaving memories filled with happiness
A few memories filled with sorrow.

I peer out my window
At a world cold  and bleak,
A world of conflict, anger and hate
Mortals are suffering as I speak.

But we have a dream
All my friends and I,
That one day there will be peace
No more mortals will die.

And there will be hope
Of a world filled with love one day,
A wish that could come true
For hope is the last to die…they say.

Not a world of race, color or gender
Nor closed minded ridicule or prejudice...you see,
But a world that respects another’s dream
Of what or who they wish to be.

So I peer out the window
Not with sadness, fear or sorrows,
But a heart filled with a dream of love and peace
For a world and all its tomorrows.
                         (Larry “Dutch” Woller) 

I shall close for now, life is calling and have dreams of my own to follow (and the laundry is waiting for me), but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂

 

 

Until we meet again…

May flowers always line your path 
and sunshine light your way,
May songbirds serenade your
every step along the way,
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.
                         (Irish Saying)

    • Thank you for stopping by!.. I do agree, however, I believe the change will come with the people, as they use technology to learn and understand, the leaders will not change unless the people do…. 🙂

      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!

  1. Another beautiful post, and perfect timing given the current events in the world. A new ending, I like that, and you’ve included some absolutely fantastic quotes. It’s amazing what you do with sending in your observations for so many years, too, and to the UK! That’s so cool!

    Sending my very best wishes your way. I hope the week is treating you kindly so far.

      and all that your heart might desire.
