Thought of The Day. The Road Not Taken.

One of my favorite books is “The Road Less Traveled” by M. Scott Peck.  I read it for the first time in 1983 when I really decided to take control of my life especially professionally and the second time in 1989. This is one of my favorite poems, so I’m sharing it with you. Live your life – make your own choices no matter how much flack you might receive, it’s best to be authentic than to live someone else’s vision of your life.

 

The Road Not Taken

By Robert Frost

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;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Jody Watley and Shalamar Bring The Disco Nightlife to Sao Paulo

I’ve never been to Brazil and am extremely excited to be going there in June with my newly reloaded SHALAMAR. Nate Allen Smith, Rosero McCoy and I are having a great time and continuing to bond offstage and improve upon what we’re doing onstage.

When writing the lyrics to my single and collaboration with Count de Money titled “Nightlife” from PARADISE, I totally channeled classic disco but at the same time focused on how to bring that love of the music, the spirit and soul of it into the now. The concept was always of a ‘worldwide phenomenon’ – that journey continues. It’s in the music!

“NIGHTLIFE” peaked in the Top 20 on Billboard Hot Dance Club Play Singles in 2014 and went into the Top 5 Commercial Pop and Urban in the UK. Music lovers continue to discover the song which is available at digital outlets around the world.
