The Road Less Traveled

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth.

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same.

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

~ Robert Frost

Friendship ~ Love

Friendship is a quiet walk in the park with the one you trust

Love is when you feel like you are the only two around.

Friendship is when they gaze into your eyes and you know they care.

Love is when they gaze into your eyes and it warms your heart.

Friendship is being close even when you are far apart.

Love is when you can still feel their hand on your heart when they are not near.

Friendship is hoping that they experience the very best.

Love is when you bring them the very best.

Friendship occupies your mind.

Love occupies your soul.

Friendship is knowing that you will always try to be there when in need.

Love is when you will give up everything to be at their side.

Friendship is a warm smile in the winter.

Love is a warming touch that sends a pulse through your heart.

Love is a beautiful smile to which nothing compares:

A tender laugh, which opens your heart,

A single touch that melts away your fears,

A smell that reminds you of the tenderness of heaven,

A voice that reminds you of the innocence of youth.

Friendship can survive without love.

Love cannot live without friendship.

Unconditional Love ~

In the truest since of the word, love is unconditional.  I experienced this love for the first time on the days that each of my children was born. Amazingly, the moment I saw my own children appear, a feeling overtook me and I knew that I would sacrifice everything and willingly lay down my life for each of them. I knew that no . . . → Read More: Unconditional Love ~


In the early part of autumn with the leaves changing color and the cool breeze in the air I am reminded of Oktoberfest. This year the world’s largest fair is taking place from September 18 until October 4, 2010 in Munich, Bavaria, Germany. This area of the world is the most romantic, picturesque place imaginable.

Happy in the Now!!

It has taken me a long time to realize that in order to achieve and find joy and balance in life, we must become masters of being in the zone.  Having never been involved in sports, except as a fan, I’ve never personally experienced this phenomenon on the playing field. As a sports Mom, however, I have come . . . → Read More: Happy in the Now!!

Dawes KPRI Concert ~

The Dawes KPRI concert aboard the Adventure Hornblower in the San Diego Harbor was fabulous. The afternoon was simply beautiful and the music was wonderful.

Autumn Courage

Autumn days remind me of cool breezes and dreams that have not yet been realized. Growing up I always dreamed of learning to sail, I was fascinated with the idea of living aboard a boat and sailing the world with the love of my life. Romantic, oh yeah, realistic, who’s to say.

Learning to sail is still . . . → Read More: Autumn Courage

The KPRI concert aboard the Adventure Hornblower on Sunday Sept. 19th was even better than expected.

The day turned out to be warm and pleasant and the music was simply beautiful. I had listened to a few of the songs before the concert but was very impressed with the talent that this group possesses. With only a . . . → Read More: Dawes ~ KPRI Frequent Listener Concert ~ San Diego Harbor
