George Brown returns to the photo challenge this week after 6 weeks of no internet connection. Upon returning home to Australia reconnecting to the ‘real world‘ has taken much longer than anticipated.
How appropriate that on my first week back to the Word Press photo challenge there is a challenge so well suited to my returning home and leaving my Florentinian adventure.
My choice of photo is a fork in the road in Granada, representing Robert Frost’s famous poem: ‘The Road Not Taken‘. What I like most about this picture is that neither road represents a path obviously any better than the other and such is often true of life – you never know the path you didn’t take.
The Road Not TakenTwo roads diverged in a yellow wood,And sorry I could not travel bothAnd be one traveler, long I stoodAnd looked down one as far as I couldTo 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 thereHad worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally layIn 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 sighSomewhere 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.
