I have always been a fan of poetry, particularly when i was younger and seemed to have more time for “stopping to smell the roses.” One of my favorite poets is Robert Frost, who is probably most well-known for his poem “Road Not Taken.”
The last lines of the poem…..

|I took the one less traveled by,|
|And that has made all the difference.|
I can relate. I find myself in this place that I could never have imagined…….the oddity, a pioneer. I am amazed at where this road has led. In it’s simplest form, this road is all about the transformation from bad to good.From this
This work was done by my daughter, Olivia, who has been grooming cats for most of her life and currently works as an instructor at the National Cat Groomers School. What she does is an art form and a rare one at that. The results of her work are greatly appreciated by our clients. And I’m sure the cats are thankful, too.
I love traveling this road that has often been a very bumpy one, many times requiring some actual trailblazing along the way. I love watching my daughter make her journey along the same path. Knowing that my efforts have made the road smoother for her and others that are choosing the same less-traveled route gives me a sense of great satisfaction.
