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.

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 people who will jump in their car and take off with absolutely no plans for where I am going or when I will arrive. I always like the idea of enjoying life without having to plan it all out; I always enjoy the interesting occurrences that have taken place off of the beaten path and it seems that some of the best loved memories occur when they are least expected and not planned.

The old saying “the best part of the journey is the journey not the destination” is one that always proves itself true. To travel with no destination in mind is wonderful and to travel with a partner that shares your since of adventure is even more fulfilling.

I have been blessed to find a partner in life that is a teacher, a lover and a friend. Together we are enjoying our new mode of transportation as we begin our journey of seeing this country up close and personal.

Our latest adventure was a 1500 mile motorcycle trip. We began our trip in Illinois, traveled into Wyoming, down to Colorado and back to Wyoming. It was my first experience on any motorcycle trip that involved more that riding around the block. In preparation I had scoured the internet and questioned many friends on what to expect and what I would need to take along. It seems that the best piece of advice I received was that it is not what you bring but how you experience the ride that is most important.

From the passenger seat I experienced it all by involving every one of my senses in the experience. To me it was the embodiment of total freedom. I think, besides flying, this has to be one of the most exhilarating experiences imaginable. The feel of the wind in my face was amazing and the closeness it gave me with my partner was tremendous. We could both experience the sights, sounds and feelings separately and then could talk about them once we had stopped to picnic, stretch, gas up or just because. This is a simple way to travel and it is so very wonderful and it turned into a trip that I will forever treasure.

Taking an extended motorcycle trip was one of the things that had always been on my “to do list” but the opportunity had never presented itself to me until now. I am so thankful that the timing on this journey turned out the way it did because it was even better than I could have imagined. The weather was perfect as we traveled through the heartland of America, there were beautiful clear skies and the temperatures were pleasant and comfortable. We traveled leisurely, taking in the scenery and stopping and enjoying life. It is refreshing to know that this wonderful life is filled with one adventure after another and it is absolutely amazing how many things I find to give thanks for each and every day. I am truly, truly blessed.
