“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I
I took the one less travelled by,
And that has made all the difference.”
Do you recognise these lines? They have been taken from Robert Frost’s poem ‘The Road Not Taken’.
“Two roads diverged in a yellow wood and I, I took the road less travelled by” How relevant are these words to you? Which road do you travel? Is it ‘your road’, or one illuminated by the attitudes of others? Do you feel compelled to travel the ‘popular’ track, or obliged to strike out along rebellious routes; do you walk traditional paths or unconventional lines? Or, are you simply standing at the crossroads confused. Do you wonder which is the ‘right’ path or rather, which is ‘your’ road?
My brother once accused me of being a seeker. He argued that if I constantly seek I would never find. He suggested I was running through the woods wildly with no sense of direction. His point was valid. I realised I needed to decide on a destination. More importantly, I needed to be able to recognise when I got there. But first, I needed to discover where (or who) I was.
