the crossroads

It’s always been a metaphor for some irrevocable life choice. Robert Johnson was said to have found the devil there, ready to play let’s make a deal. But it was Led Zeppelin who — after picking Johnson’s purportedly ill-gotten musical bones clean —  offered an escape hatch with Robert Plant’s assertion that, “There’s still time to change the road you’re on.” Which, I guess, means that you can either backtrack and choose door #2, or (to reference yet another Robert… wth?) you take the road that’s so much less traveled it’s not even a road yet. That last option certainly seems the riskiest. Who knows what’s out there? Scorpions. Sasquatch. Revelation. Annihilation. But one thing’s for sure…

“Traveling old roads in new shoes won’t change your destination.”

live life

Posted in pearls by Nancy on February 12, 2010

Live life
Like you are not
Like you just happen to be there
Watch hate
Like a trip to the zoo
Like you breathe

For this
You deserve no credit
For this
You deserve no blame
But for this
The shell you thought was you will crack
And the control you gave up
Will be returned to you
But by then, you will not care
