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.

Easter in San Juan del Sur

Easter week is pretty crazy here in San Juan del Sur, because it is a Nicaraguan tradition to head to the beach for “Semana Santa” (Holy Week). Our first year here, we visited a friend in Northern Nicaragua where it was much less crowded. This year we decided to stay and experience at least one Easter holiday in our home town.

Last minute I decided to plan a small Easter party at our house. I was on the fence about planning something because I wasn’t sure I wanted to spend my Sunday morning preparing for a party instead of just enjoying the day with my family. Then, one of the first things Azalea asked me in the morning was where her Easter dress was. I had to rummage through her closet for something “special” to wear. She got dressed up with “Easter shoes” on before the clock struck 7am. That settled it for me, we must do something fun for the kids.

Happily a few friends were able to come over to enjoy the day, then we headed to the Playa Hermosa for some relaxation and a cool down in the ocean.
