An Ode To Books

You may have been wondering where I have been. Over the summer, I was able to read quite a few books. Unfortunately, the wifi/Internet where we were staying kept going out. This left me to try to navigate the world wide web via my iPhone in a land that despises my phone carrier. Then, my husband kept whisking me away on surprise trips. So, I laid down the blog for a few weeks. Perhaps it was good..I have had many things on my mind by way of what I want to do and what I want to do differently. I think my theme in the time to come is going to be to open different doors. We don't always have to continue on a path because we have always done it. Ask Robert Frost. New reviews will begin next Monday. I hope you click in and follow my love of Christ and literature. Much love to you. 

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 marked 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. 
Robert Frost
