”The woods are lovely, dark, and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.” ~ Robert Frost

These words, written nearly 100 years ago by Robert Frost, resonate deeply with me. While there are countless interpretations of this poem, to me “Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening” exemplifies the importance of taking a moment to pause and reflect before pushing on. We could all use to be more mindful of these moments, especially when it means experiencing nature at its best.
