    Robert Frost

    Meadow

    I always follow my own path, rarely sticking with the crowd.  I'm not much like them anyway, so there is no need to follow.  I found this one quote a long time ago.... My entire life has had me feeling my way through the meadows while everyone else plowed through hallways and...

    When I meet people on a plane or at a party and they get around to asking 'what do you do,' they are usually confused when I tell them I am a Cigartainer.'Just exactly what is that?' they inquire.  I chuckle as I tell them how I travel around the country teaching people at...

    You may find that the things of value

    and importance to you aren't really of value and importance to anyone else. No point in repeatedly banging your head against a brick wall. I take the path that I believe is best suited for me.
