Two Poems to Usher in 2010

Pardon me as I post something non-geospatial to end 2009 and begin 2010. To me, these poems are insightful on why it is important check ourselves every so often to make sure we have our priorities in order. Happy New Year.

THE WAYS
But to every man there openeth,
A way, and way, and away,
A high soul climbs the highway,
And the low soul gropes the low,
And in between on the misty flats,
The rest drift to and fro.

But to every man there openeth,
A high way and a low,
And every mind decideth,
The way his soul shall go.

-John Oxenham

THE WINDS OF FATE
One ship sails East,
And another West,
By the self-same winds that blow,
'Tis the set of the sails
And not the gales,
That tells the way we go.

Like the winds of the sea
Are the waves of time,
As we journey along through life,
'Tis the set of the soul,
That determines the goal,
And not the calm or the strife.
-Ella Wheeler Wilcox
