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.

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.

Here in my world I am trapped in the modernism of today’s lifestyle and the way of life that we as Americans have become accustomed to. In the small towns of Germany, the world moves at a slower pace and I remember with delight the feelings of complete happiness that I experienced while visiting there.

Though it has been several years, when I close my eyes, it is as if I were once again standing in the Alps and experiencing the most majestic views imaginable. My time there was a true gift and one that will live forever in my heart.

There is an area in Bavaria that is known as the Romantic Road. The area is all that is implied by the name and more. It is full of castles, churches, monasteries and every romantic image one could dream of. This is truly a step back into the past to the days of knights and ladies fair and a remarkable fairytale view of romance in full bloom.

Another breathtaking area is the Rhine River. In traveling down this river I was amazed at all of the wonderful castles that dotted the banks. Some were in various states of ruin but all evoked a since of the romanticism that seems to be missing in the modern world of today. This river and valley is full of mythical legends and myths of love and enchantment and romance.

I remember vividly the magnificent colors that were visible in the trees this time of year, the oranges, reds and greens. I remember the feelings that grew deep in my soul because I was able to embrace a place that had become so important to me. I remember the feelings of acceptance of myself and the world around me because I had rediscovered myself in this beautiful part of the world.

I know that life is full of blessings and of magical moments, for me, visiting this area of the world and remembering its allure, is one of the greatest and most extraordinary. So, as I once again snuggle under the blanket on this wonderfully chilly and rainy day, I will reflect on the pictures in my mind and will forever be thankful for the moments that have made me realize that I am truly blessed.
