“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) 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  🙂 ).. 🙂  

 

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.

Hello Diary,

Stopping the world briefly… thought I would share a few thoughts… though the weather has been much like summer, but have been preparing for change, at least in the house…  🙂

 

 

Putting in an extra effort this week, then plan on a relaxing weekend with a spot of Earl Gray, perhaps some meditation and contemplate  change that lies on the horizon…  🙂

 

 

A peaceful  morning, watching the sun arise
Thoughts abound, while sipping on a spot of tea,
While taking in Nature’s outdoor portrait
Contemplating, on what Fate may have instore for me.

Change is slowly coming, it whispers in the winds
The door is slowly closing on past history,
With a  new awakening with the mind and spirit
But the future is still shrouded in mystery.

With the freedom of being different, in many ways
No social shackles do this mortal wear,
Do welcome change with open mind and spirit
No fear, no worry or dread do I bear.

Does change stop at mortal death, one wonders
Or does it go on forever and ever,
Will I ask the same at another time and place
Somewhere past the 12th of Never?

Will thought and spirit continue
When, as in all things, my mortal time comes to an end,
Or does all things cease to be, when
To the grave, the mortal body Fate does send.

Alas, but must deal with the present
So now will store thoughts and musings yet to be told,
For it’s down the path least traveled I do venture
To  hopefully find my rainbow…. and what life, and Fate, may behold.
            ( Larry “Dutch” Woller )

Well, I had better close for now… laundry has finished and the sweeper is forlornly standing in the corner waiting...not to mention dreams to follow…. Busy, busy, busy…  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)

  1. My mind says that whey the heart and mind disagree, they can listen to one another and find a compromise. Both are important. The heart sees the beauty in our highest aspirations. The brain helps us take steps to move closer to our heart’s desire. May your heart be joyful, Larry!

    • Thank you for stopping by!.. I do agree… unfortunately there are those whose mind and heart either refuse to compromise or both so negative the mind and heart fail to see the beauty… 🙂

      May you always be blessed

      laughter to cheer you,
      those you love near you,
      and all that your heart might desire.
