Sprung break

Not enough sun has my rhythm sprung.
I'm in pursuit of rest and restoration,
heat and humidity, waves and warmth,
beaches and baseball, saltwater sailing,
lizards and live oaks, alligators, egrets,
manatees and mangroves, pelicans and palms.

Back in a week.

Thanks for all that thinking before you left--all very interesting. Hope you find many egrets and manatees and alligators-at-a-distance.

Happy alliterative vacationing.

Marly, more fantasizing than thinking involved! Thanks for your good wish.

Happy and safe travels -- and I'm sure all those equations will hold up just fine! (I really do love to fly, but every now and then, when turbulence kicks up...)

I hope to have a long weekend in which to catch up on your writing as well as others'.

May your vacation be as full of sparkle as a Winslow Homer or John Singer Sargent tropical watercolor.
