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.

Feelings of Fall ~


                   Whimsy and fancy

 Happiness and dreams

          Love filled with laughter

A magical thing.

Moments of love

Minutes of time

Wrapped up together

A rainbow does shine

With colors and chances

Each one so unique

A lifetime of memories

For The Free Spirit In All Of Us ~


I have always enjoyed taking road trips. It seems that just the thought of taking off footloose and fancy free with no real destination in mind is one of my favorite things; some of life’s best surprises are the trips that are unplanned, spur of the moment journeys.

I am one of those . . . → Read More: For The Free Spirit In All Of Us ~

Remembering Bavaria ~

As the summer days turn cooler and the beginning of autumn is on the horizon I am reminded once again of the enchantment of Bavaria. This area in Germany is full of romance and intrigue. The buildings are an architectural dream and the countryside with the rolling hills is breathtaking.

The Cowboys of Wyoming

Why does the thought of the American cowboy bring to mind romance and nostalgia? What is it about the cowboy that personifies the American spirit of adventure and intrigue? Do we all dream of a simpler life and time that is only imagined by most but lived out daily by the cowboys of the Western frontiers? . . . → Read More: The Cowboys of Wyoming

Labor Day ~ Red Rocks ~ Zac Brown

As the Labor Day Weekend approaches I am filled with excitement to be heading to Denver. We have  just completed a 1000 mile motorcycle trip from Illinois to Wyoming and will be heading to Colorado for the long weekend to see friends and attend a Zac Brown concert in Red Rocks Amphitheatre. 

The views from Red Rocks are so spectacular. . . . → Read More: Labor Day ~ Red Rocks ~ Zac Brown

Come Monday ~ Jimmy Buffet

As Labor Day approaches I am reminded that it has been a year since I began writing this Bohemian Review Blog. There have been times that I have published a lot and others that I have slacked off. This year I hope to dedicate more time to this project and expand and follow through on other ideas that . . . → Read More: Come Monday ~ Jimmy Buffet
