I wrote this whilst on a recent family vacation. I remember thinking how badly I needed a rest- from everything. But not just any kind of rest.

I’ve been blogging and writing daily for 2 years- solid- and figured that if I was to regain my strength, I’d better do it the way lions and eagles do!

They are the 2 creatures I’d very much like to emulate. Thus, the inspiration for this write:

Where does the eagle lie

when it’s too tired to fly?

On what does the lion’s head lay

after keeping his enemies at bay?

Show me the secret places

of the eagle that soars

and the lion that roars

-that I may find succour

and renew my strength

while I rest my oars
