Difference is an Artists game ....

I hardly have the words for this post so instead take the 4 min and 16 seconds to watch this video and it will speak for itself. I know we are all busy with life. Living it. Making our way through it. The 5 minutes this will take, is precious time in mosts people's hectic lives, however for those who choose to watch, I feel confident that you won't leave disappointed. You will leave moved. I promise. I found this on a blog that I am in complete awe of. It is one of those blogs that leaves you thinking and feeling and laughing and crying and smiling. It leaves you with the desire to revisit because you just know that your heart and mind will for sure be touched. Inspired in fact. So thanks Emily for the difference you make in my life through your advocacy and for the words that help guide me through my own journey. Help guide Zoey through her very own remarkable journey.

And remember, scroll down and pause my blog music FIRST before you hit play on the video.

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.

Loved that one-Heather!! Thanks! I pray my older ones will someday show such unconditional love and compassion for their younger siblings. Now it seems like wrestling and potty talk is all I hear. What is it like having the kiddies back at school? I need a new project!! Any ideas?

Very moving....and very insightful. This video (as all you have posted do) touched my heart and my mind. I love the idea of artists and life. Everytime I see a creation, on the wall or living, I'll use my new eyes in appreciation. Thank you.
