A favorite quote

"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."

From The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost

Haven't we all taken the road less traveled?  There is no one path to take in life; the paths diverge as we make decisions about what to do or who to be.  My path will never be exactly the same as your path, even if we reach the same destination.

For example, Sissy started first grade at the local public school last year.  Before that, she attended a nearby Waldorf school for three years.  She's not the only first grader at her school, and not the only child to leave a Waldorf school to start first grade elsewhere, but she is the only first grader at her school that went to this Waldorf school.  That is part of her path, and that road is not traveled by anybody else that she knows.

So I ask, is there really a road more traveled?
