The Calf-Path and “Can’t Find My Way Home

The poem I read at Open Mic last night is called, “The Calf-Path” by Sam Walter Foss (1858 – 1911) The poem starts,

One day, through the primeval wood,
A calf walked home, as good calves should;
But made a trail all bent askew,
A crooked trail, as all calves do.

Since then three hundred years have fled,
And, I infer, the calf is dead.
But still he left behind his trail,
And thereby hangs my moral tale.

Read the whole poem here. I chose this poem to challenge me to make it a point to walk off the beaten path. I find it easy to just walk down that oldĀ  beaten path.

George brought back a “Blind Faith” song, “Cant Find My Way Home.” This song brings back memories from my college days. Cranking up the stereo sitting around enjoying great conversation and good music. Enjoy:

George and Tim give the song a good run. It does call for some fancy finger work. Now way I could follow along with out a few hours of practice, if then.
