The Road Most Traveled

(audio available for paid subscribers)

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I —

Just think what a different life you might live if you deleted all those subroutines and strode into your future unencumbered by someone else’s programming? 

That sounds like heresy, but that’s where we’re at – heresy or orthodoxy. Those are the two roads that diverge in the wood. One, well-traveled and crowded, leads down into a muddy rut. The other, less traveled and lonely, leads up and away from the safe and familiar.
