The road less traveled by...
It was my day to check cow bunches and to see how the bulls were doing. It is breeding season here on the ranch and so we must be sure that the bulls are "doing their job" and are healthy and unhurt. I took lots of pictures but these, of trails, reminded me that the roads we take in life aren't always as clear as we'd like. Many are less traveled and hard to keep to which is perhaps why the Bible promises, "Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path...." The road is walked, step by step.
Click photos to enlarge them so you can see the trails a little more clearly. Some are quite hidden by lack of travel and growth of grass and foliage.
The Road not Taken
~By Robert Frost
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.
