And Now a Few Words From Mr. Frost....

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


The Road Not Taken
Robert Frost
~the last stanza~

  1. It can be so difficult to forge our own paths, but usually when we do it pays off. However, if the road less traveled looked a little more like the ones in your photos, maybe the first steps in our trail blazing wouldn’t be so difficult to take. At least the scenery would be grand.

  7. The first pic looks very similar to a house in my neck of the woods. Isn't it a shame when old farm houses get in this state?

  9. Well my visit with you this morning made me laugh, smile, and nearly choke on my tea. Small town life, yes, I lived in a rural small town for 24 years. I loved every second of it, but yes, people knew me better than I knew myself. And sometimes, I didn't even know what they were talking about.

    I've perused the last few posts and loved them. I adore your part of the world. Try to explore there when we drive from our home in California to our beloved cottage on an island in Maine.

    This is fun and I thank you for starting my day with a big bang.

    All joys,

  13. I like how you used Robert Frost's poem with your photos. Studied his works in high school and did a paper thesis on them.

  14. There is something about that poem that people really connect with, isn't there? I guess we have all faced forks in the road, big ones and small ones, and whether to look forward without regret or to keep looking back and rethinking the choice is a shared human dilemma. (I tend to look forward because I can't remake the choice.)

  22. Lovely photos.

    There was a movie I saw once called "Sliding Doors" which was intriging and made me wonder how my life would have changed if I made different decisions along the way? I guess we will never know!

  23. I definitely connect with this poem as well. I forge down roads less traveled. They are bumpy at times but usually get to a more engaging and interesting place in life. Stunning photos to match Frost's poem!
