THE ROAD ... TO BE TAKEN!

The title refers to the latest post on the blog of an admirable mother and learner, Alice:


She describes a difficult decision she has to make, since she sees herself standing in front of the same bewildering fork that Robert Frost met before he wrote 'The Road Not Taken'. 

Alice's essay is the outcome of an intriguing lesson we had together about life, in general, and people's various ways of living it. In this specific lesson, we watched Ric Elias explain what the three things that really matter in life are, as he unraveled the thoughts that sprung into his mind the minute his doomed plane went down.

We also heard Nickelback's song 'If Today Was Your Last Day'  and contemplated on what each one of us would do if we knew that we were running out of time. Some of the questions which arose were: What is truly worth our effort and attention? What constitutes the very essence of life?

Any learners (or other readers!) interested can leave their comments on the topic under this post.
