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.

Oktoberfest

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. I was fortunate enough to attend this event a few years ago and look forward to returning.

Oktoberfest began as a celebration when the citizens of Munich were invited to attend the festivities leading up to the marriage of Crown Prince Ludwig to Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen on October 12, 1810. The fields where the celebration takes place were renamed Theresienwiese (“Field or Meadow of Therese”) to honor the Crown Princess. Today they area where Oktoberfest takes place is referred to as Wiesn.

I will be writing about my excursion into Germany in upcoming posts.
