Robert Frost wrote about two paths diverged in the woods and about how taking the one less traveled made all of the difference in his life. In the grand scheme of things taking the one less traveled is how I think we should all live our life in and out of swing. The tough part is that Mr. Frost didn't mention the propensity for paths to split into more and more forks making the choices much harder each time we take a step down said path. Each time you choose the less traveled path you loose people along the way and bring your self closer and closer to being alone in the end.
Faster or slower...Slower
Swung or Unswung...Unswung
Pop or Blues...Pop
Dance to the beat or the Words...The Beat
Straight timing or Syncopation...Syncopation
The choices go on forever and in the end we all end up in just about the same place convinced that we worked harder, bleed more, and are more deserving of that location than the guy or gal standing to our right or left. The truth (in my opinion) is that the road less traveled although tougher to navigate is easier to get bated into believing you are somehow better than the rest. The road with the beaten path may be easier to tread but may cause an inner struggle with not loosing who you are in the crowd.
The difference is what you make of it. If you choose to go down the beaten path don't just blindly follow that crowd...push the pace. If you choose the road less traveled do so with a humble spirit and make sure the trail you blaze is never over someone else.
