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.

October Skies ~

Sunrise

I spend the weekend at the Harbor, one of my favorite places in California, enjoying the sunshine, the friendships, the good food but mainly the incredible October skies. It is hard to imagine a more beautiful, natural sight than these I’ve been blessed to have the opportunity to experience every morning and evening.

From my earliest days I have been a star gazer and a sky watcher. I’ve spent many an evening looking up to the skies searching for peace of mind and dreaming of the future. It always seems that the stars are never brighter than in October and the colors of the sunrise and sunsets are never as vivid as they appear to be in this beautiful autumn month.

Waking with the sun as it rises over the mountain and then reflecting on the day as the sun sets in the evening fills my heart with love and gratitude.

People go through their whole lives chasing everything in the material world, and they fail to discover the greatest treasures of all.

Today I am reminded of the song “Sailing to Philadelphia,” by Mark Knopfler. This song tells the story of the two men hired to survey the border between Maryland and Philadelphia in the 1700’s. It has a haunting sound to it and seems to be perfect for stargazing. Mark  Knopfler has such a wonderful, raspy voice and I love the way his writing stirs my soul.
