"Two woods diverge in a yellow wood"--
At least the "I" in "The Road Less Traveled" has a clear-cut choice in directions. Travallers down the Road of Life often more than two choices, and the direction in which they need should go is not so clear-cut. Thus, they don't know what their decisions should be. I've encountered my share of lack of clear-cut choices down the Road of Life. What church should I go to? What candidate should I vote for in the next election? Should I watch "Citizen Kane" or "Vertigo?" Or should I read instead? And what should I read?
Currently I "reading" a book, 1 PAGE AT A TIME by Adam J. Kurtz. Each page features an exercise to do. The page I did yesterday sported a crudely-drawn rectangle with the words FREE SPACE, crudely handwritten in it. At the page's bottom, in teeny-tiny type, I saw this: "You'll see these wide open spaces as you move along. Sometimes there's no clear direction. Take a deep breath and try to enjoy it."
That's a valuable life lesson. Sometimes there are no clear-cut choices. When that comes, one just needs to take a deep breath, dive in, and enjoy it.
Earlier this morning, while I was writing in my notebook, I realize that my "office," the table where I do most of my writing, websurfing, eating, and drinking, needed some straightening out. So, soon after I'd finished writing, I worked on putting some of the stuff that had lain on the table and put it back where it belongs.
Sometimes the direction in which you should go is take care of the issue that most needs taken care of.
