The Road Not Taken

I am working on a couple of things that I want to share...but it is slow going. In the moving from a craft room to storage has left me a little frustrated. I can't find anything!!! It is very pretty here today, the sky is so blue. It is cold! Arney is taking Trevor (son) in for his ankle to be checked this morning. this is his first check up since his surgery. I can tell he is very nerves. He is trying so hard to stay positive through this time. As I was searching for things I need for a project, I came across this poem by Robert Frost. It seemed right for the beginning of the New Year. So I thought it would be nice to share it with you. I am sure most of you have read it before, but I felt good about posting it today. Also I wanted to share that the background is the tree's and two roads, I put the lady taking one of them into this graphic. The Road Not Taken
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 not 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 took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Knowing not what is at the end of this road....I found myself asking this question...which one would I have taken. We make decisions everyday that seek a good ending but how do we choose? With our head or our heart?

Such a lovely, thought provoking post today. I admire Robert Frost, so thank you for choosing this fine poem. I more often than not make decisions with my head, instead of my heart. I'm a Gemini, and it is all about the thought process for us. We find it very difficult to turn off our minds. But when decisions are made with my heart...they always seem to be the more rewarding. Hope your roads chosen in 2010 are the right ones for you.

Beautiful poem, beautiful picture.

I hope Trevor's checkup goes good and that everything is healing the way it should.

I love this picture and your addition to it is lovely.

I have to think about this a do I choose which road to take??? I am sure it varies...but I hope my heart always plays a part...even if my head knows what is right/best for me, I like to think my heart gets a vote too. If that makes sense?

Hoping Trevor is healing well.

Hi Mary!
Hope Trevor is doing well and got a good report.
Pretty post and the music is too.
I usually go with my heart, but sometimes I wish I'd gone with my head in the past. Oh well, no use second guessing oneself. Take care..
