This pretty much covers how I've been feeling lately.

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 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.

Thank you, Robert Frost (and Happy Birthday)

I love Robert Frost. We're going to Vermont this summer and I've already planned out our stop at his farm. :)

Do you have the Mo-Tab's "Choose Something Like a Star" CD? It's all of the Frostiana songs. Frostiana is a choral work writen by composer Randall Thompson with the lyrics being Robert Frost poems....it's really good.
