Letter from the Publishers


Folks, it is finally fall. The nights are cooler and crisper, and the days less sweltering. Our favorite fall poem is Robert Frost’s The Road Not Taken.

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.

Cindy and I take time every year in late October to reflect on the decisions we have made that have brought us to this place where we are now. We have often chosen that road less traveled and I believe it has made all the difference. It isn’t so much those times when you choose good as opposed to evil or make a wise choice as opposed to an unwise one. It is the times when the choices look about the same and you have to choose. I know there are those who interpret the poem as the speaker just telling his friends that his choice made all the difference when the choices were no different at all. I choose not to believe that. Choosing the road less traveled has made ALL the difference for us.

Peace & love,

Mike & Cindy Hart
