Amaris means ‘you are loved’ in Latin, and Amaris Salon is a gathering of people around the table for mutual encouragement, enrichment, and inspiration to pursue a life worth living. The goal of Amaris Salon is to offer a hospitable, healing presence as well as a place for individuals from different walks of life to feel valued, safe and free to engage in honest and heartfelt conversation about what is and how to live a life worth living.

The gathering will reflect upon some basic dimensions of life, and participants will be encouraged to engage in honest and heartfelt conversation find their own answer to what makes for a life worth living.

During this gathering, we will reflect on the subject of life worth living in light of Robert Frost's poem, "The Road Not Taken". Frost said that this poem was "tricky" and often misinterpreted. While many readers take it to refer to the importance of not following the crowd, Frost said that it referred instead to the tendency to regret past decisions, even inconsequential ones

Participants will be encouraged to engage in honest and heartfelt conversation find their own answer to what makes for a life worth living as we reflect on the poem together.

"The Road Not Taken"

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.
