Changes are in the winds, especially among the choir as it is that time for them to move on to seek their destiny and share their harmony with others… 🙂

 

Hello Diary,

Change is also in the climate, where today it feels more like being in the Amazon… it may not be fit for “man nor beast” but the hibiscus is loving it!!…  🙂

 

But life does go on, so taking the time to do some needed sorting in the home… while doing so came across some items that signified change… in 1998 at Christmas time Wal-Mart had computer packages on sale (Packard Bell tower, monitor and keyboard) so we purchased one, our first entry into cyber space, internet were dial-up over phone line…  I remember the salesman saying it had 10 MG of memory/storage and that would be all we needed… it looked like the PC in the picture…  🙂

 

I still use the speakers…the reason the I had thought of the old computer were when I were sorting, I came across the old printer… 🙂

Now, all it would do were print black and white or color, one could not copy or edit.. it were noisy and if one had to print multiple pages, it would shake and a dance around on the desk… I also found our first laptop.. it were a Dell and it had 124 MG of memory/storage and weighed 15 pounds.. one did not want to carry it around all day… 🙂

And finally, I came across our first mobile phone… it were a Motorola Meteor (sometimes referred to as a “bag phone”… 🙂

One still had to use a dial up to call, connection were sometimes iffy, could only talk and when on the road one kept it charged up by plugging into the cigarette lighter of the auto, technology were still in infancy of sorts, but having a mobile phone was starting to gain interest as peoples daily lives were changing… 🙂

With today's technology, there is hope here on the path that everyone will be able to communicate better world over, have a better understanding of each other and work together in harmony in order to have the planet Earth a better place…  🙂

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)

Well, I had better close for now, have more sorting to do.. not to mention dreams to follow… but will return again one day, Fate, and technology, be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise..  🙂

 

Until we meet again, whatever road, path or trail of life you choose to take.. 🙂

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 and spirit know love and happiness
On your journey through life.
     (Larry “Dutch” Woller)

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” (Declaration of Independence, USA) on the path least traveled…

Yes, everyone were born equal but it seems there are elements of today’s USA society (and world’s societies) that have either not read those words, do not understand or the words “went in one ear and out the other”….  Not so here on the path as my friends and I have a the same dream as those who penned the Declaration of Independence… 🙂

 

 

We have a dream… 🙂

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.

Hello Diary,

It is a peaceful Sunday morning here on the path and while I ventured out to gather weather data I were serenaded by my backyard friends…. 🙂

 

It is a holiday Sunday here on the prairies but a quiet day planned here on the path, while sipping on a cup of tea… 🙂

And while gazing on the horizon (looking south from my backyard)…. 🙂

Will contemplate the tomorrows… 🙂

A quiet Sunday morning to wake up to
Sitting, gazing out, with a spot of tea,
Contemplating today and my tomorrows
Wondering, what will the future might  be.

A quiet Sunday morning, life is calling
Beckoning on the path, its mysteries many unfold,
Each to explore and treasure
One day to become a memory to behold.

A quiet Sunday morning, birds chirping 
Another day to learn and explore about me.
It is my life.. only I can live it
So will do it my way.. don’t you see.

A quiet Sunday morning, of me being different
Reminding me of words from a song,
Where do I fit in, one would ask
One wonders, where do I belong.

A quiet Sunday morning, here on the path
At the end... on the horizon… lies my rainbow,
It is there my answers lie... the truth is known
Until then, only Fate and destiny will know.

Yes, a  quiet Sunday morning, spirit, body and mind at the ready
To seek that rainbow... perhaps around the next bend,
Once found, I’ll have my answers, destiny known
And that will be the beginning, not the end.
                      ( Larry “Dutch” Woller )

Better close for now.. Tea is ready, Kindle is ready, time to stop the world and get of for a bit, but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂

 

 

Until we meet again..

May your spirit only know peace
May your heart only know love
May all your dreams come true
May your life’s journey be filled with happiness
And life is all that you wish for it to be….

Hello Diary,

It is a Friday morning, a holiday weekend arriving here on the prairies… a weekend to remember the fallen who have given the sacrifice while serving… those who passed because mankind, closed minded and filled with hate and prejudice, chose the sword over the pen when trying to settle differences… and all that were accomplished was the sowing of more seeds of hate, anger and suffering… 

I know first hand about the cost of conflict… that is me sitting on the ground, South Vietnam, 1966…. It were a beautiful country with pleasant people who simply wish to follow their dream…unfortunately there were closed minded elements of worlds societies who were only interested in their dream, ready to sacrifice anyone else’s dream… fortunately for me, I survived the conflict relatively unscathed… 🙂

 

 

(me sitting on the ground).

We were volunteers, one and all
So Noble.. Proud.. and Brave,
Did not know the reasons for  war
Just a people from tyranny to save!

Glasses held high, we made an toast
Surely that Victory would rule the day!
While back at home, the voices of unrest
Not a kind word for  us did they say.

Some could not vote, children were we
Some not old enough to drink, but still our battle cry,
Even with all that we could not do
For us children, it was to do or die!

Vietnam was a hostile, violent land
The dangers, the horrors of war abound,
Whether the paddies of Vietnam or the fields of home,
Seemed for us, not a friend could be found.

But we proudly  gave it our all
Faced  our destiny, with a hint of fear of tomorrow
Some to return to a mother’s joy
Some to return to a mother’s sorrow.

So should you be looking on today
One more toast,  hold your glasses high,
To PEACE, HOPE and LOVE, may they long endure
CHEERS, LADS AND LASSIES!!!.. And SEMPER FI
    (Sgt, Larry “Dutch” Woller, 12th Marine Regiment, Vietnam, 1965–1966...)

Here on the path there will be a pause to think, not only of the fallen, but also those who sacrificed their dreams also, the Mothers, Fathers, Wife’s, Husbands, Daughters and Sons of the fallen who will be remembered this holiday weekend… 🙂 And once the pause is over, all attention will be focused on the pen and hopefully wisdom will one day reign, peace will rule the land and the universe will be celebrating the living, not the dead… 🙂

Well, I had better close for now… the vaccination were relatively painless and, while I will proceed with caution, am ready to leave safe harbor, set sails follow my heart… but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂

 

 

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.

Hello Diary,

Thought I would stop the world briefly, dismount and share a few thoughts…. last Friday I finally were able to get my Covid vaccination… I received the Johnson & Johnson one shot, one and done…  today it is Sunday and I have yet to experience any side affects or symptoms, hopefully that will continue…. I will still proceed with caution while dealing with the virus on a daily basis… 🙂

I seen a number of discussions as to how to protect the card, whether to laminate or not… some vaccines require a second vaccination, the vaccine I received does not but I still may need access to the card in the future… well, I first took a picture with the cellphone so I have it there, then I came up with a idea…

I had a old picture album with blank envelopes, so I carefully removed one of the envelopes… 🙂

Once removed, I took the card and inserted in the envelope against the top and back…. 🙂

Being careful and making sure I leave a small border, I trimmed the bottom and open end… 🙂

I then carefully used some clear Scotch tape to close the bottom…. 🙂

I carefully trimmed the tape and, Voila! I have a envelope that not only protects the card, but also enables to see without removing and should it be necessary, can remove the card… 🙂

I thought I would share my thoughts and perhaps it will help someone or perhaps give a hint that will enable someone to conjure up their own idea because that’s what old friends do… 🙂

Well, I shall close for now, rejoin the world, and follow dreams being led by the heart… but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂

 

 

Until we meet again, today and every day…

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

Hello Diary,

To Mom and all the mom’s of the universe, past, present and future who have shown a love (second to none) for another, who have sacrificed, known joy and heartache even though received little praise for the efforts, have a wonderful Happy Mother’s Day, on Mother’s day and every day, and may each day be filled with peace, love and happiness and thank you for being you!…  🙂

 

 

Thank you Mom… 🙂




Thanks for letting me feel love
Be it joy, or be it heartache,
To know someone’s love
A treasured feeling their love did make.

Thanks for letting me live life
To explore, to follow one’s dream,
To seek out and live every adventure
Not enough time in the day... it did seem.

Thanks for letting me meet friends
To share thoughts of love, hope..perhaps a tear,
And by going down the path together in friendship
Doing away with hate, anger….and fear.

Thanks for giving me the courage
To follow my own path...to be me,
To not follow someone else’s path
To live my own….. reality.

Thanks for giving me an open mind
As I venture down the path... allowing me,
To gaze upon life’s treasures, large and small
That many others do not see.

Thanks for giving me an open heart
Able to love, understand and forgive,
And when I grow too old to dream
A place where my memories will live.
          (Larry “Dutch” Woller )
Yes, Mom, without you I could not fly.. 🙂

Will close for now, venture down memory lane while gathering new memories… but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂

 

 

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.

Hello Diary,

Though it is a bit cool, spring has definitely arrived here on the path… also arriving are many different  plants… and the garden here on the path is much like today’s world societies in the everything is different… and, like they do others,  there are those in today’s world societies that will look down upon and ridicule  those that call the gardens of the path home simply because of being different… 🙂

 

Among those plants are the little blue violet.. 🙂

The white clover.. 🙂

And who could forget the bodacious little dandelion… 🙂





I think of all things that show a zest
For life, the dandelion beats the rest.
The little winged seeds from its white fluff ball
Settle and grow with no urging at all.
Settle in most unlikely places
And soon there’s a crop of dandelion faces.

They are man’s worst pest, but a child’s playthings.
Sometimes I wish I had light down wings
Like a dandelion seed, and could settle at will
On a velvety lawn or a sun-spread hill,
And live with the eagerness and zest
Of the wanton little dandelion pest.
 (MARY TRIPLETT)

Here on the path they are not ridiculed but envied… why?.. they chose the path least traveled and are different and happy because they are born free… 🙂

And, because I choose happiness… 🙂

I also chose the path least traveled and being different… 🙂


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 those social chains, 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.

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 )

Yes, like here on the path, in spite of ridicule and prejudice, the world is a beautiful place because everyone is different… 🙂

Well, I had better close for now… need to venture on down the path being different and seeking new adventures… but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂

 

 

Until we meet again, whatever path you choose, hope it is filled with love and happiness.. 🙂

Tomorrow is Sunday here on the path, Easter  for those with faith based ideology, a religious remembrance… and with conflict, illness, etc. it may be trying times for those folks also… just before my late wife passed (cancer) she were visited by a Chaplain… he ask her if she had a religion and she said “No”, he then ask her if she believed in the hereafter and she said “Yes”, the Chaplain said “Good, for it is what is in the heart that matters, not a name above a door”… 🙂

The universe knows I am not into religious ideologies, but am a independent, born again heathen (so they tell me) but I believe there is a saying; “God promised you a safe landing, he did not say the journey were to be a smooth one”, so whatever one believes, nor how dark the skies or life’s challenges, perhaps you should listen to your heart filled with dreams, one can do that anywhere, anytime… 🙂

 

 

Dreams..
There's a place where I go that no one else knows,
Where mysteries abound and excitement grows.
A place out of reach of any man's hands,
Safely secluded in a far away land

Beyond the grasp of those who may plunder
The wealth of its power and its life changing wonder.
I go alone to my secret place, never leaving a trace
For someone to follow and discover my space

Where I keep my secrets, my fears, and my regrets
Away from the world and all of its threats.
It's mine and mine alone!
The only place I can call my own.

I treasure the moments spent in this realm
Where anything is possible and I'm at the helm.
This place I describe is all that it seems ...
It's a magical place I call my dreams.
                                              (John Raines)

Hello Diary,

Yes, tomorrow is  Sunday and a Easter holiday here on the prairies…a pleasant spring like Sunday to behold… unfortunately, here on the path there may not be any Easter eggs this year as it appears the Easter bunny will be taking the day off, being a holiday and all…  🙂

 

And here on the path the only eggs are powdered… 🙂

Sooooooooooo, the only coloring will be from a book… 🙂

BUT, I will enjoy the day anyway…. why enjoy one would ask?… because the sun will put in an appearance… 🙂

And hopefully will wake up on the green side of the grass and because I can…. 🙂

A quiet  morning to wake up to
Sitting, gazing out, with a spot of tea,
Contemplating my tomorrows
Wondering, what will the future be.

A quiet morning, a open mind
Thinking about the path, its mysteries many fold,
Each to explore and treasure
Soon a treasured memory to behold.

A quiet morning, a open heart
Another day to learn and explore about me.
It is my life.. only get one chance
Will have to do it my way.. don’t you see.

A quiet morning, on the path
At the end of it, on the horizon, a lovely rainbow,
It is there my answers lie... the truth is known
Until then, only Fate will know.

A quiet morning, spirit and mind at the ready
To seek the rainbow... perhaps around the next bend,
Once found, I’ll have my answers, you see
And that will be the beginning, not the end.
                  ( Larry “Dutch” Woller )

So, will enjoy the day with a cup of tea…. 🙂

And some help from my favorite orchestra, Andre Rieu… 🙂

So, I had better close for now  make ready to enjoy the day, for it won’t come again… but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂

 

 

Until we meet again, Happy Easter wherever you are...

May your spirit only know peace
May your heart only know love
May all your dreams come true
May your life’s journey be filled with happiness
And life is all that you wish for it to be….

 Time flies, and memories fade.
 People change and new friendships are made.
 Only the true remain forever at our side.
 Eventually the disappointment and pain will subside.
  
 It is all about the journey and what has yet to come.
 Life is what you make of it; you are what you've become.
 Life is too short to hold onto regrets.
 Forgiveness is key even though you may never forget.
  
 Cherish the good and remove the bad.
 Some people don't realize till it's gone what they've had.
 Moving on is a way of life.
 There will always be obstacles, pain, and strife.
  
 You must believe that you are strong enough to fight.
 You have to believe in yourself to do what is right.
 Always do for YOU no matter what you do,
 Because in the end the only one who has your back is you.
  
 Never be afraid to take a stand,
 And always be willing to lend a helping hand.
 A little bit goes a long way.
 All it takes is a smile to brighten someone's day.
  
 Your chance to live is now, so what are you waiting for?
 The world is yours for the taking and so much more.
 Endless possibilities are forever at your disposal.
 The chance to live another day is life's golden proposal.
  
 Never let anyone tear you down,
 And never let anyone steal your shine and make you frown.
 So will you sit in the shadows and let darkness win again?
 Or will you rise up and make the light your friend?

“So stick to the fight when your hardest hit, it’s when things seem worst that you mustn’t quit” (Wade Watts) and this is our fight song… 🙂

Hello Diary,

Yes, one doesn’t quit in spite of life’s storms “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain”. (Author Unknown), unfortunately for the Valentines Day holiday it were a snow storm…  🙂

 

But,  learned to dance (in the snow) and woke up this morning and words of Mark Twain filled my thoughts; “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover, acquire new friends and  gain knowledge of yourself and the world”  (Samuel Clemens aka Mark Twain), so I gathered what I needed to venture into the world, when the need and opportunity arises, all the while keeping in mind the safety and welfare of others so they too can follow their dreams… 🙂

 

Floppy flowerdy hat (check), walking stick (check), Banana Boat (check), face mask (check), camera (old phone, check)… 🙂 And what I needed to venture into the Cyberworld… 🙂

 

 And no matter what life and Fate has put in front of me, it is down the path of life I go… 🙂
  
 I awoke one morning, alone, in history’s past..
 Left with a heart full of memories, a decision to make,
 Confronted with two paths to my destiny..
 Heart and mind to decide which one to take.
  
 Take the one most traveled, the logical safe choice…
 The one chosen by the multitudes..the human race,
 Like sheep, following a path determined by another…
 No self identity, all bearing the same face.
  
 A most traveled path whose direction is chosen by a few
 The rest to follow, ever so blind,
 Their destiny not chosen by their own hand
 Their fate determined, by a closed mind.
  
 The other path less traveled, mysterious and unknown
 Where one can be different, like me I confess,
 Without fear of ridicule, bigotry  and hate
 A path filled with love... and happiness.
  
 A path less traveled where one can follow ones dreams
 An open mind to see what others do not,
 To live a life guided by one’s heart
 While the other path one cannot.
  
 Decision made, with eyes on the horizon
 It’s down the path least traveled I do venture,
 Excitement fills the air, a smile on the face
 Looking forward to a great adventure.
  
 My fate will be unknown, what lies ahead unsure
 I do not know…. what my destiny will be,
 But one thing will be certain, written in stone
 I shall venture down that path …..being “ME“.
           ( Larry “Dutch” Woller)
   
Yes, excitement fills the air and heart as here on the path it is a new age, a new year and a new dawn… 🙂

And as Jimmy Buffet would say “ I don’t look back too often for there is too much in front of me I wish to see” so I shall close for now, but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂

 

I have friends to visit, adventures to find, so the sails are set full, heart’s compass pointed to the horizon and so it is… 🙂

Hello Diary,

 

Valentine’s Day is suppose to be a day of love and happiness, so from the path least traveled, Happy Valentines Day wherever you are… 🙂

Hand picked for you (I ate the chocolate)… 🙂

 

 A bouquet of flowers from my garden,
 Their beauty need not be told,
 Their fragrance is soothing and lovely
 A pleasant scent for one to behold.
  
 They remind me of you, my friend
 Whose beauty from within you do share,
 Sharing sunshine, understanding and laughter
 Sowing the seeds of  love and happiness in the air.
  
 This bouquet was picked for you
 For coming into my world, my friend,
 For giving sunshine, laughter, love and happiness
 For which I know  will never end.
  
 Sharing a few thoughts about you, my friend
 Coming from the heart
 Thoughts that will never end
 Even though in life, we may part.
    ( Larry “Dutch” Woller )
   
And remember, my friend, no matter what anyone may say, you are unique, one of a kind, special and you make the world a better place and you will always be beautiful just the way you are… 🙂

And with my wishes that everyone have a wonderful and Happy Valentines day filled with love and happiness, I shall close for now..but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise.. 🙂

 

 

 And until we meet again, on this day and every day.. 🙂
  
 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.

 A Quiet Sunday Morning…
 
 A quiet Sunday morning to wake up to
 Sitting, gazing out, with a spot of tea,
 Contemplating my tomorrows
 Wondering, what will the future be.
 
 A quiet Sunday morning, a open mind
 Thinking about the path, its mysteries many fold,
 Each to explore and treasure
 Soon a treasured memory to behold.
 
 A quiet Sunday morning, a open heart
 Another day to learn and explore about me.
 It is my life.. only get one chance
 Will have to do it my way.. don’t you see.
 
 A quiet Sunday morning, being different
 Reminding me of words from a song,
 Where do I fit in, one asks
 One wonders, where do I belong.
 
 A quiet Sunday morning, on the path
 At the end of it, on the horizon, a lovely rainbow,
 It is there my answers lie... the truth is known
 Until then, only Fate will know.
 
 A quiet Sunday morning, spirit and mind at the ready
 To seek the rainbow... perhaps around the next bend,
 Once found, I’ll have my answers, you see
 And that will be the beginning, not the end.

Hello Diary,

As the new year commences and contemplating the future, have dwelled on a number of things, love, sharing, etc. and today will share a few thoughts about happiness.. as Agnes Repplier said; “It is not easy to find happiness within ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere.”  (Agnes Repplier)….  🙂

 

 

And the best way to find happiness is being me… 🙂

 

 Happiness is to have loved
 Than have not loved at all,
 To share love with another
 To always heed one's heart call.
  
 Happiness is to follow one's dream
 To be who one wishes to be,
 To live one's own life one's own way
 Not live the life of another, you see.
  
 Happiness is always waking up on
 The green side of the grass,
 Even though the day may be stormy
 Knowing it too shall pass.
  
 Happiness is knowing another
 A understanding, caring friend,
 Someone to share life's memories with
 A friendship to never end.
  
 Happiness is to pen thoughts
 Let the fingers do the walking,
 Thoughtful words that come  from within
 Because the heart does the talking.
  
 Happiness is freedom of thought and being
 I am what I am, don’t you see,
 Neither this one, neither that one, but all the above
 In a mortal world, a free spirit, that’s me.
  
 Happiness is knowing when to end a poem
 For it is down life’s highway I need to venture,
 To gather more memories and thoughts to share
 As I live, and enjoy,  today's new adventure.
                    (Larry “Dutch” Woller)
   
And there are plenty of sunshine here because .. 🙂

In spite of life’s challenges, here on the path it is a wonderful world indeed…. 🙂

Soooooooo, will close for now and venture on down the path to seek out new adventures being led by my heart… but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂

 

 

And one of the best ways to find happiness is follow Roy Bennett’s advice; “Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart.” (Roy T. Bennett ) and ABBA’s advice… 🙂
