The ATCs Continue - In Your Own Words

This theme requires that at least three words are on each card written in your own hand.  This was a little stretch for me as I don't usually write on my cards.  I have been working on this set off and on for weeks.  But at last it is complete.

Bubbles - "Everyone's life is filled with troubles. May all yours burst like fragile bubbles."  OK, so I'm not a poet.  Still.....

The Color Purple - "All other colors are just colors, but purple seems to have a soul. Purple is not just a noun and an adjective but also a verb - when you look at it, it's looking back at you."---Uniek Swain    I obviously chose this sentiment because purple is my favorite color.

Days of My Life - "I look back at the days of my life...each one distinct...and yet, woven together, they make up the rich and beautiful texture that is My Life!"  Sentiment is my own composition and does reflect part of my philosophy of life.

Two Roads Diverged... - Part of the poem by Robert Frost, "The Road Not Taken". It has been one of my very favorite poems since I can remember.  I have posted the complete poem below this card so you could have the joy of reading it.  
The Road Not Taken
Robert Frost

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.
