A long time ago, before I discovered food writing, I used to write on other things. When foodwritng came, I quit other writing. For 6 years I have written exclusively on food. Many times along the way I have wanted to write on other things, poems, expressions of opinion or just non food things, but I never gave in. I did not think I was very good at writing on anything other than food. Then this April as I struggled with writing my book (on food), I stared scribblng on othr things....
Ever had a thought that starts as a little spark and grows into something you would like to talk about to someone... someting worth sharing... well these are some such things... little side trips of the soul..
Somtimes roads led ontoroads that do bring you back...
The Road Not Taken ~ 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.
