“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

In history’s past, on the path, I had a dream
Of a world in harmony it did seem,
Accepting one as to who they believe and are
One’s lifes choices no one did bar.

Free to climb a mountain, to touch a star
Free to search the universe, where answers are,
Free to venture through life, with open mind
Another’s belief, it did not blind.

Free to boldly walk the lands, both far and near
To lives one’s life without suffering or fear,
Not to be accepted by belief, gender or race, you see
But by the love, understanding and knowledge of a spirit born free.

Children could follow their own dream, you see
Not to be denied by another’s ideology,
To follow the destiny of their own choice
Not to be hindered by another’s voice.

I still have that dream, you know
A dream that began a long time ago,
A dream without end, each and every day
Until the four winds, they all blow away.
                          (Larry “Dutch” Woller)
Hello Diary

Yes, the only road to happiness is to follow one’s heart, being led by one’s dreams… … just before my wife’s passing she were visited by a Chaplain.. He ask her if she had a religion, she said  “No”, he then ask her if she believed in the hereafter and she said “Yes”.. He then said “Good, it is what is in the heart that matters, not a name above a door”…  🙂
 To follow one’s heart often that means one has to follow one’s own path, not the crowd, and may be looked upon as being different “When someone tells you “you’ve changed”, it might be because you have stopped living your life their way” (John Pence)…  🙂
But I chose  to  follow my own path even though at times life put challenges in the way..  with patience I simply adjust the sails on my ship knowing if I follow my heart I won’t go wrong “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, agreeing with Illahi Bedi.. 🙂

As Frost said,
I have an option of two paths ahead of me,
One pre decided by my ancestors,
less risky and challenging,
Other of my own,
I decide to take the less traveled one,
To mark on journey of my own.
                          (Illahi Bedi)

And I chose my journey being different and..

And why do I wish to be different, you may ask,
The freedom to choose, to explore, to learn a lot,
Dictated to by a prophet chained to a myth…. NOT
Maybe so everyone can shout and point at me,
And say, “Hey, he’s different”, don’t you see.

My mind is clear and open, gathering knowledge every day
My spirit is young, adventuresome and floating free,
Not confined by social  bounds, no box, no mold for me
I am what I am, I am me, what I wish to be,
Perhaps that makes me different, don’t you see.

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.
Free to boldly walk the lands, both far and near
To lives one’s life without suffering or fear,

So my heart’s compass is pointed to the horizon
Sails set full, safe harbor fading in the distance, a faint glow to eye it seems
And with a pocket full of memories, on the horizon are my dreams
On down the path least traveled I will venture, with spirit free
Why the path least traveled?..well, I’m different, don’t  you  see.
                                         ( Larry “Dutch” Woller )

Well, I had better close for now, dreams to be following, more life’s challenges on the horizon ( and the laundry washing machine is done  🙂 ), but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂

Hope whatever path or trail you take is filled with happiness and life is all that you wish for it to be 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 heart only know love and happiness
On your journey through life.
     (Larry “Dutch” Woller)

    • Thank you for visiting and kind words!.. I think it depends on the town and the individual… some people are more sensitive in public than others and can easily get lost in a large town… some small towns are more closed minded than others… 🙂

      May love and laughter light your days,
      and warm your heart and home.
      May good and faithful friends be yours,
