A Path Less Travelled


The Road Not Taken
by Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller, 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.

 Robert Frost has been recorded to be one of the most famous and popular poets in American history. During his lifetime (1874-1973), Frost published numerous books of poetry, and won the Pulitzer Prize four times — a record unsurpassed by any other poet.  He was known to have struggled with depression, but managed to transcend this and left a legacy that to this day, schools use his verses to inspire millions of students.

  1. Hello ms Deangelis,
    I just read your Jan17th article and would love to read about synchronocity in life. Thank you in advance and many thanks for the great research on these topics.


  2. Gauthier — thank you for visiting our blog…. DeVita Brown at http://www.plim.org/Synchro2.html, gives some insight about ‘synchronicity.” She sites according to a “famous Swedish psychologist/physicist named Carl Jung (1875-1961) first coined the term “synchronicity” to explain what he called “meaningful coincidences ” that are not related by any causal events. His concept of synchronicity came about through the many baffling coincidences his patients shared with him in his practice, especially as he began to realize that the occurrences went beyond what could be attributed to mere chance. During his lifetime he had some paranormal experiences of his own.”

    You may want to read “The Power of Flow: Practical Ways to Transform Your Life with Meaningful Coincidence by Charlene Belitz, Meg Lundstrom or “I Can See Clearly Now: How Synchronicity Illuminates Our Lives” by Mary Soliel. Perhaps you may learn if there are or are not coincidences, possibly synchronicity is at work.
