Not Taken

Does Frost’s “The Road Not Taken” Apply?

I received the letter sometime this week in October 1964.
The document speaks for itself. 1I’d met with Mr. Echols on or about July 30 to discuss conditions of employment, but I did not save the August 5th employment offer letter.

CIA Final Letter
Being in the Army Security Agency and not being able to talk about my work with my wife weighed heavy every day. I anticipated being in the CIA would be at least the same if not more.

I was due to be separated from service on October 31, and my debriefing process was started.

Who knows what stories I could tell if I had taken the CIA path.

One thing for sure, I’d not have what I have now. I am certain God was guiding me without my realization.

As my octogenarianism continues, my mind wanders as I wonder.
Or could it be that my mind wonders as I wander?
It is a fact that I have opinions – or is it?
