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… 🙂
( “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 were asked about my views on friendship… well, again here is thoughts by Adam Clarke..
“Portrait of a Friend”
I can’t give solutions to all of life’s problems, doubts, or fears. But I can listen to you, and together we will search for answers.
I can’t change your past with all it’s heartache and pain, nor the future with its untold stories.
But I can be there now when you need me to care.
I can’t keep your feet from stumbling. I can only offer my hand that you may grasp it and not fall.
Your joys, triumphs, successes, and happiness are not mine; Yet I can share in your laughter.
Your decisions in life are not mine to make, nor to judge;
I can only support you, encourage you, and help you when you ask.
I can’t prevent you from falling away from friendship,
from your values, from me. I can only think of you, talk to you and wait for you.
I can’t give you boundaries which I have determined for you,
But I can give you the room to change, room to grow, room to be yourself.
I can’t keep your heart from breaking and hurting,
But I can cry with you and help you pick up the pieces and put them back in place.
I can’t tell you who you are or who you will be
I can only love you and be your friend
And my thoughts..
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 dear 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 dear friend,
For giving sunshine, laughter, love and happiness
For which I know will never end.

It is a Tuesdsay and it as been a pleasant week thus far weather wise, getting lots of house cleaning done.. not so pleasant weather last Saturday morning as I got my first taste of winter… ventured outdoors and there were frost on the ground…
It were s good thing I were not going anywhere in the auto… 🙂
And the roof of the house appeared to have a layer of snow, could almost hear Santa and his reindeer.. 🙂
But in spite of the frost and cold, a little volunteer violet decided to set up housekeeping outside my backdoor…
No matter life’s challenges, no matter the circumstances, the little born free violet has the will to live.. reminds me of the little dandelion..
Will to Live
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.
Well, I had better close and get on with the day.. the sweeper won’t run itself and I don’t have Alexis.. 🙂 but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…
“Life is complicated and not contained to a few ideologies or beliefs, therefore in order to better understand the universe, and me, I need to leave safe harbor, with open mind, and explore all of the universe, not just parts of it..…” (Larry “Dutch” Woller)
So, until we meet again…
May the sun shine all day long
Everything go right, nothing go wrong
May those you love bring love back to you
May all the wishes you wish come true
May peace be within you
May your heart be strong
May you find whatever you’re seeking
Wherever you may roam
