The path taken ...

The path taken ... Authored by Chuck Keys One day I'll go for a walk and forget to come home and lose myself among the trees and the gnomes. I'll be dressed in my walking shorts, shoes and socks ready to face the unknown world and all of its locks alone and free, seasoned with age beyond my years afloat unbridled from people and places and ready to emote. The path will go straight and sideways, straight and backways and bend to the left to secret hide-a-ways. I'll be dressed in my walking shorts, shoes and socks ready to face the unknown world and all of its locks Lose myself I will, on purpose with forethought and glee because that is what makes me, me.
