Okay, I confess that when I was in my 20’s I was a huge fan of Robert Frost. And while this is not a “yellow wood,” I could not help but recall his poem, “The Road Not Taken.” It played a small role in my decision to do what I am doing today. Isaiah 6:8, however, played a far greater one.
Still, who can resist these words: “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 . . . . Two roads diverged in a wood, and I — I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” —Robert Frost
