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,

Has been a busy week the past week and will be another busy week this week…I had posted this earlier when it appeared that WordPress were having issues, some of you may have seen it… with all the conflicts and issues transpiring in this world, thought I would change the title and try again…  🙂

Yes, change, in many forms,  is coming and by working together we can make this world a better place even though we may be different, “Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” (Barack Obama ) …  here on the path I do not wait for a leader to tell me what to do or try to do good for others… I do not need, nor use,  a sword, guns, bombs, conflict, etc. …  my weapons of choice are a open mind, a heart full of dreams, understanding and love…  🙂

There is much I can do and what I do may seem small at first glance, but “I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” ( Mother Teresa) …  and there may be times when I feel like I am doing it alone, but “Confidence is knowing who you are and not changing it a bit because of someone’s version of reality is not your reality.” (Shannon L. Alder) so following my dreams while working with others to hopefully make a difference….  🙂

 

 

The change is rapidly approaching
As I contemplate the tomorrows,
Leaving some memories filled with happiness
A few memories filled with sorrows.

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

But we have a dream
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 or a tear, 
But a heart filled with hope and a dream
Of a world  of love and peace, not hate and fear.
                         (Larry “Dutch” Woller) 

Yes, there are many things I can do, for example.. 🙂

And here on the path we can continue to follow our dreams because we have hope… 🙂

HOPE IS

Hope is a feather floating in a bright blue sky
Hope is that sparkle that shines in your eyes.
Hope is a butterfly fluttering on the wind
Hope is good times spent with family and friends.

Hope is a newborn baby’s cry
Hope is a Mother’s lullaby.
Hope is the rainbow after a rain
Hope is the harvest of golden grain.

Hope is the light that keeps darkness at bay
Hope is the breeze on a hot summer day.
Hope is ever present and free of cost
Hope is the last thing ever lost.

Hope is staying positive when the going gets tough
Hope is seeking help when you feel you’ve had enough.
Hope is recovery from simmering sorrow
Hope is believing in a brighter tomorrow.
                    (Linda Hotger)

Yes, change is taking place here on the path, and together we can help build a better world of love, peace and understanding, but only if you want to… 🙂
Well, I had better close for now, not only dealing with changes I am making, but changes in climate also, not to mention the laundry...busy, busy, busy…  but I shall return again one day, Fate willin’ and the creeks don’t rise..  🙂

Roses are red
Violets are blue,
Thoughts from the heart
I’m sending to you.

Not just another  day, my friend
For in spite of time, distance or whatever,
If only in spirit and thought
We’ll be sharing this day together.

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

      But the best ships are friendships

  2. Another positive post, which quoted the sentence “someone’s version of reality is not your reality” That is the root of all evil in our world. And the solution is to make an effort to tolerate people rather than expend energy fighting them.
