July Create: The Road Not Taken

1 Conversation

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;

The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost

This month we would like you to think of a decision you almost made.

  • Did you almost choose an exciting career in MI5, or as an aluminium siding representative?
  • Did you almost become an astronaut or an international jewel thief?
  • What about the time you almost moved to Timbuktu?
  • Or almost went on that round-the-world sailing cruise?
  • Did you have plans to start a garage band that would rival the Beatles?
  • Tell us about the near-misses and might-have-beens. Or the night you almost said yes when Mr Wrong proposed. (Or almost proposed to that nut down the street). Whether you prefer Prose, Pictures or Poetry, we want to hear from you.
