Six months ago, who could have imagined the current state of our world today. The effects of the coronavirus resulting in no physical schooling, no large gatherings, a plethora of virtual events and meetings, and restrictions in restaurants and bars, in addition to the discontent and activism that has shook our society.
All these circumstances have led me to think about how we can best navigate these current storms. The result has continuously reminded me of one of my favorite poems – The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost.
Always take the high road when it comes to treating and thinking of others. It is important we embrace the “now” and enjoy our friends and family today.
We need to stay healthy together by practicing social distancing, wearing a mask and washing our hands.
Of course, a glass (or can) of good wine never hurts and always hits the spot.
These adages represent the road that should be taken, and one that will make all the difference!
Stay safe and healthy! A votre santé!
All the BEST,
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.
