“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) 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  🙂 ).. 🙂  

Hello Diary,

Yes, there are changes here on the path in many forms and the one change has been falling  leaves… last month ole Jack Frost stopped by and gave notice that ole Man Winter were not far behind… since then the backyard as starting preparing for winter and the trees, have started the process of preparing for winter slumber…. soooooooooooooo, last week I have been busy with the leaves…  🙂

 

I do not burn leaves or send the leaves to a landfill, I have a compost bin in the backyard where I store the leaves.. good for the environment, the residents of the backyard use the leaves and in time the leaves decompose and return elements to the soil, a win for everyone… 🙂

I also use the leaves for mulch as the leaves are natural and backyard residents use the leaves to store food and winter protection… 🙂

I am not the only one dealing with change…  🙂

I set here with my tea
And watch the leaves a fallin’
It’s becoming clear that one day 
Jack Frost will come a callin’

Most of my bird friends have went south
In the southern warmth they’ll stay
But I’ll not shed a tear in sorrow
For they’ll be back again some day

All us creatures that are staying behind
To deal with the cold and snow
Are getting our house in order
And waiting for winter’s blow

The squirrels are gathering leaves and such
To insulate their winters nest
The possum is checking every nook and cranny
To find a place for his winters rest

The bee’s are picking up the pace
Gathering nectar with the morning sun
Storing winter food for the hive
Before their work on earth is done

A spider spinning it’s web of silk
I watched as it grew and grew
Soon to become natures work of art
With tomorrow’s early morning dew

This poem could go on and on and on 
But alas, I have things to do
For, like it or not, don’t you see
I need to get ready for winter too.
    (Larry “Dutch” Woller)

And there are times when change can be personal… “There are things that we may not want to happen but have to accept, things we may not want to know but have to learn and people we cannot live without but have to let go ” (Author Unknown)… 🙂
Well, I had better close for now… going to put change on hold briefly and relax a bit with a cup of Earl Grey, contemplate my tomorrows and what the tomorrows may bring… but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…  🙂

Hope all is well in your part of the universe and 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)

  1. I always feel so sorry for bees and wasps. They work so hard but then perish when winter comes round, doing everything, including giving their lives, so that the queen and next year’s hive will survive the coldest of weather.

  2. So so so true !

    “The past has already lived; the present is running;

    The future is waiting to be born through the present, transitting.

    The present is what we surely do feel; and the past is what we often make contrast.

    The future is waiting to be seen as the present was once when time was past.”

    Wow ! Your quote is so inspiring that words came out of me expressing the virtue of Time.
