“Here on the path  I venture down life’s highway, not with the fears of a closed mind, but with the dreams of a open mind, a heart filled with memories, and a free spirit filled with  hopes for a better tomorrow” (Larry “Dutch” Woller) 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  🙂 ).. 🙂

I live in a not so secret garden
Along the path least traveled,
Quite unlike the other world
A world that has become unraveled.

A garden of peace and harmony
Being different does not matter here,
All creatures, big and small, living together
Unlike the other world,  they do not live in fear.

Together we live the hand that Fate has dealt us
Not sure, or dwell, on our final destiny,
But live to enjoy the moment, the hour, the day
That is what life is about, don’t you see.

So into the not so secret garden I will venture
Along the path least traveled, 
To find love, understanding, to follow one’s dreams
Unlike the other  world unraveled.
                       (Larry “Dutch” Woller  )

Hello Diary,

In the past I have shared thoughts about many things, love, environment, climate, etc. and talked about my not so secret garden, the path… they say “ a picture is worth a thousand words so I thought I would post a bit about where I live….  🙂

I live in a small village ( around 800 people) and we have a bank, school, post office, pubs, library, etc… just have one electric stop light by the school… I will share some photos of what I see when I step out my front door outside the garden and backyard…  🙂

 

 

So, welcome to my world… 🙂 This is looking south from my front door… 🙂

When I walk a 1/2 block to the south, this view is looking to the west… 🙂

And this is the view looking to the east… 🙂

And standing on my doorstep and looking to the north… 🙂

And if I walk about 6 blocks or so to the north edge of town, this is the view complete with wind farm… 🙂

And I see clouds of white… 🙂

Red roses too.. 🙂

I greet many folks on my walks and I watch children grow.. 🙂

And in spite of life’s “storms” , “I'm not afraid of storms, for I'm learning how to sail my ship.” (Louisa May Alcott), so it is a wonderful world indeed..  🙂

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.
                         ( Larry “Dutch” Woller )
Hope your world is a wonderful world filled with love and happiness 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!!.. yes it is, they use the abandoned railroad bed for a bike trail… it is lined with trees, ventures through the different villages and is about 30 miles long.. the riders don’t have to worry about traffic, etc. 🙂

      Until we meet again..
      May your troubles be less
      Your blessings be more
      And nothing but happiness
      Come through your door

  3. much appreciate your generous sharing of your slice of life. I’ve only ever lived in big cities, can’t imagine… seems like small town would either be really nice or really awful depending on neighbors? yours are fortunate to have you 🙂
