One Single Impression: Fork in the road

- - - - - - - -

which way should we go
for here's a fork in the road
you call — heads or tails

- - - - - - - -

[below is a part of Jim's May 20, 2006 post]

yesterday on our walk
my Adi and I came
to this fork in the road


didn't take either path

went straight up the middle

through those trees — ending up here

The same may go for poetry? (whatever, I enjoy painting with the words!)

This was so sweet! I loved the pic of Adi at the fork in the road.

BTW, It's My Poetic Path, Jim.

Heads, but don't go backward, unless you know how to swim.

Adi is a cute little thing ... I use to have a mutt that looked somewhat like this, but when he got killed by pit bulls, it hurt so bad I couldn't bear to have another.

Excellent choice, Jim. A friend with good instincts is an asset at times like these!

I am loving our OSI community more and more as I see many takes on forging new paths rather than following set choices!

These were fun :-)

I smiled as I saw your decision which way to go.

Well done.

Some of the best adventures are off the beaten path. Excellent.

Have a terrific day Jim. Big hug. :)

But if the tail should wag, which direction should be pursued?

I love the visual pun -- Adi's head, or Adi's tail. And I like Adi's choice -- right up the middle. Nothing like a dog to get down to the gist of things!

very innovative idea... go through! it reminds me of a quote.. "the only way around is through!"

I guess a dog would go for the trees-they have their own priorities.
Great pics and poem.

Well, that turned out just right!

I say let Adi choose. Well done, Jim.

You are quite the adventurer, Jim! But I'll bet it was all Adi's idea!

Hello Adi, from Gandalf and Grayson!

Love your dog! You are right, that is exactly where I would have gone. So green there, we had snow and rain all day.

Love it Jim~ great pictures too! It's always good times when the dogs get to choose

Great choice Jim! Maybe I should look at life that way. Make my own path. It worked out just fine for you!

Dr Jim,
You put your stance across in very exquisite ways. Sharing great moments with Adi, a faithful companion is exhilarating and all within the peaceful fairways of what appears to be part of a golf course. It cannot be better than that. Pick a path within good surroundings and not under pressure. It will result in rational thinking. Great take!

Adi is a wonder. I love this.

Ha, sometimes we shouldn't chose at all.. make ourself independent of conventions and from roads

This is simply wonderful! Sometimes we should just try and go with the flow :)
