Fruitful Friday

A Boundless moment by Robert Frost

He halted in the wind, and–what was that
Far in the maples, pale, but not a ghost?
He stood there bringing March against his thought,
And yet too ready to believe the most.
‘Oh, that’s the Paradise-in-bloom,’ I said;
And truly it was fair enough for flowers
had we but in us to assume in march
Such white luxuriance of May for ours.
We stood a moment so in a strange world,
Myself as one his own pretense deceives;
And then I said the truth (and we moved on).

A young beech clinging to its last year’s leaves.

A beautiful poem. My interpretation is that this poem is a reflection on life. It represents someone shedding the old and embracing the new, growing as a person. In the poem what “it” is, is hard to recognize, representing that the person they see now is not who they would’ve seen before, yet this person is still clinging to some semblance of their past; “A paradise-in-bloom”, a “young beech clinging to its last year’s leaves”. I hope your week went well and hope you have a great weekend!

Out of the Frying Pan and into the Fire

This is an exciting time in my life, I am doing more now than I’ve ever done in the past. That said, my life is moving so fast that sometimes it feels as though I’m in a vacuum, having the air sucked away as I try to speak; I am utterly speechless. So why start a blog? Plain and simple, I find a blog to be fun. Writing is something I’ve always enjoyed and I love a good discussion, so I figured a blog would be a perfect fit. Where my blog is headed, who knows, but it should be a journey worth taking. I have some great ideas for the future of this blog, so join me on this adventure.
