Eagle or Chicken?

I was reading "Thoughts for the Road" this morning, by Kay Peterson, Escapees RV Club Co-Founder and Director about her and husband Joe trip to New Zealand. Something struck a nerve with me. People are Eagles or Chickens. The Eagle people seem to do adventurous things just for the adrenalin rush, others are content to "scratch" around in the dirt, are called Chickens. I think at one time I might have been an Eagle, but age and illness will make you a "chicken". Chickens will never soar through the air, but scratching around the surface uncovers many wonders. Kay is a wonderful writer. 
All that to say, I didn't go to the apartment today as planned. I just didn't feel good, and it looked like rain. So, I called and re-scheduled, they were not too happy with me, oh well.


  1. You are probably trying to avoid moving into a fixed residence. If that's the case you will never feel good when you are supposed to go, so you might as well get it over with. I can really relate to what you are going through, but it's not as bad as you might think. I've had problems with where I live, but I've survived and it hasn't been all that bad. In the long run, I'm glad I settled down when I needed to, and hope I can find something longer term. Just go for it, Theresa. You'll be fine and the worst is making the commitment. Good luck.

  2. Some people "fly" without the adrenalin rush. Just keep your eyes open for the beauty in life. :)
