I’se tired. I’m not going to lie to ya. For the past ten months I have been working very hard in all three areas of my life– love, scholarship, and creativity. I have been pouring onto my students, working diligently on my studies in graduate school, and performing and sharpening my craft as a performing poet. I’se tired. I’ve consulted my spirit, and my orders are to rest, restore, and rejuvenate during this here summer break, and that is what I intend to do.
rest– verb|cease work or movement in order to relax, refresh oneself, or recover strength.
restore-verb|return (someone or something) to a former condition, place, or position.
One again, I’se tired. As I’ve explain in previous posts, I have been exactly motivated to write blog posts, nor have I been filled with authentic messages to impart on my readers. I want to provide readers with the most genuine and passionate inspiration as possible. However, I cannot do so if my cup is empty. With that said, this summer I plan on doing some traveling, spiritual work, research, and reading in order to refill my cup, so when it runeth over, I’ll have more to offer.
Break it down, B:
Ya’ll are my readers, and I appreciate you all. The feedback I have been receiving about this blog has made it more urgent for me to let you all know that I have not forgotten about this work. Soon, I will return with more content, new insight, and new inspirational messages. On the contrary, I have to restore my energy and spirit and prepare for the next phase.(Ecclesiastes 3) The best time for me to do so is during my summer break from work and graduate school.

- There is a time for everything.
“ Every person needs to take one day away. A day in which one consciously separates the past from the future. Jobs, family, employers, and friends can exist one day without any one of us, and if our egos permit us to confess, they could exist eternally in our absence. Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for. Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.” – Maya Angelou
Salute: I’m just tryna refill my cup.
