Radiohead - Reckoner

I have done almost nothing for three days.....

I am very relaxed and feeling cocoon-y.....but, I feel like my hermit status must shift a bit, so today I am off on a hike into Acadia National Park!

I have been journaling a lot lately about the paths ahead...and am reminded of that ever-referenced Robert Frost poem.....

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;        5
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,        10
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.        15
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."
