I mentioned a few months ago that I wanted to start a new project. Well, that new project has come into fruition, in the form of a new blog, The Dainty Dish. My bestie, RM, and I are working on it together and its coming along quite nicely.

If you feel so inclined, check it out by visiting: thedaintydish.tumblr.com and feel free to subscribe/bookmark it and check back frequently.

On The Road Less Traveled will always be my “life” blog, so don’t worry at all about me m.i.a. I promise to update you all about my life on the road less traveled.

im having a terrible, no good, very bad week and this is the only thing keeping me smiling.

i hope it made you smile too!

“It is important to expect nothing, to take every experience, including the negative ones, as merely steps on the path, and to proceed.”

-Ram Dass

I usually support and can relate to things that Ram Dass says, but this quote just does not make any sense to me. Mainly, the “expect nothing” part just doesn’t sit right with me. I feel that if you expect nothing from yourself then nothing will get accomplished and you might as well just sit and do nothing. I do enjoy sitting and doing nothing, from time to time, but usually I like to have a focus, a reason, a point or a goal. I can relate to the “take every experience as steps on the path”, but the rest just doesnt make a lick of sense to this girl.

::: today :::

today i want to sit outside and feel the sunshine on my face and the wind in my hair.

today i want to drink a frozen pina colada and smile and laugh.

today i want to go shopping at goodwill and find amazing things for $20.

today i want to swim in the ocean and run up a mountain and dip my feet in a stream.

today i want to braid my hair and have all my layers magically stay put in said braid.

today i want to see my best friends.

today, oh today.

what a life i lead in the summer
what a life i lead in the spring
what a life i lead in the winded breeze
what a life i lead in the spring

what a life i lead when the sun breaks free
as a giant torn from the clouds
what a life indeed when that ancient seed
is a berry watered and plowed

what a life
what a life
what a life
what a life

what a life i lead in the summer
what a life i lead in the spring
what a life i lead in the winded breeze
what a life i lead in the spring

Come up to meet ya, tell you I’m sorry
You don’t know how lovely you are
I had to find you, tell you I need ya
And tell you I set you apart
Tell me your secrets, and nurse me your questions
Oh let’s go back to the start
Running in circles, coming in tails
Heads on a science apart

Nobody said it was easy
It’s such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard
Oh take me back to the start

I was just guessing at numbers and figures
Pulling the puzzles apart.
Questions of science, science and progress
Don’t speak as loud as my heart.
Tell me you love me, and come back and haunt me,
Oh, when I rush to the start
Running in circles, chasing tails
coming back as we are.

Nobody said it was easy
It’s such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy.
No one ever said it would be so hard
I’m going back to the start.
