Easy Street

Is it possible that it is the struggle that actually turns us on?

Myself, I have never actually been on Easy Street. I may have crossed over it a few times from a side street.

I instinctively take the scenic route. And my mother told me, nothing worth doing is easy.

A successfully executed artistic process inevitably makes the results look easy.

Not very many people understand the inherent struggle. They don’t see it.
Or we might not want to show it.

Robert Frost concluded his poem, The Road Not Taken, with these lines:

“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”

If I ever do find myself on Easy Street, I may just turn at the first light.
