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.

These Days ~

I am turning 50 on Halloween. What have I learned? What would I do different?

Many people feel they would not change anything. For them I say way to go, way to truly be yourself, way to live life to the fullest each and every day. For myself however, there are many, many things that I would change, if only there were a redo button…

I would give more freely of my time.

I would dance every chance I got.

I would tell the ones I love daily what they mean to me.

I would take more risks in life.

I would entertain more often.

I would worry less about being loved and more about loving.

I would listen to more of my grandparents’ stories.

I would learn to sail.

I would learn to trust my own inner voice.

I would enjoy more sunrises.

I would see the beauty in all of nature.

I would always expect the best.

I would never settle.

~ George Bernard Shaw~ 

We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.

So, as my first half century comes to an end…

I’m learning to love myself

I’m learning to never take life for granted.

I’m learning that if you expect the best you get it tenfold.

I’m enjoying waking up early to see the dawn of each new day.

I’m enjoying the beauty that is all around me.

I’m enjoying the feeling of being in love.

As time continues to advance I want to make this next 50 years better than the last. I pray that I will develop patience and understanding but mainly I pray that I will learn to exemplify love in all of my dealings.

 ~   Albert Einstein ~     

 There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.

Benjamin Franklin ~

Those who love deeply never grow old; they may die of old age, but they die young.

I hope to always remember to dream.

I hope to always keep the childlike innocence of living life freely.

I hope to always believe that my dreams really can come true.

I hope to always remain confident in my choices.

I hope to always know that Life is a blessing and all that I can believe, I can achieve.

As I watched the sun rise today I realized, Yes, I most definitely am enjoying the dance!!


~ Robert Browning ~  

Grow old along with me…the best is yet to be…

~ Jackson Browne ~

Don’t confront me with my failures, I had not forgotten them…

These Days was written by Jackson Browne when he was 16 years old. The melody is both haunting and beautiful, as is life.
