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.

The Masterpiece ~

 

I’ve come to realize that we are the choices we make in life. We are the end result of each and every decision that we make along the way. As each day unfolds before us, we are given the opportunity to write our own one act play or to design a masterpiece.

A Weekend In Paradise ~

   

“Off the beaten path” can be a choice or a reflection; it can be a moment in which we decide to follow the crowd or to adventure off on our own and take a chance; take a chance on finding a gem in the rough or take a chance that we are able to acclimate ourselves and enjoy the prospect of only . . . → Read More: A Weekend In Paradise ~

Journeys ~

       

Traveling from Wyoming to California on the back of a Goldwing, I reveled in the magnificence of the western skies; I marveled at the colors of the trees in Colorado as their leaves began to change from green into the brilliant reds and golds and oranges that signify the end of summer; I was entranced by the beauty of  the red rocks in Arizona and the . . . → Read More: Journeys ~

Days of Autumn ~

   

As the air turns cooler and the days get shorter,  I have come to suspect that Autumn may be my favorite time of year.

This realization has come about slowly. It has come about after years of believing that Summer or maybe even Spring is my favorite season. This idea has crept into my thoughts from . . . → Read More: Days of Autumn ~

As another summer winds to a close I remember…

I remember Bavaria.
