I’ve wanted to illustrate a verse for some time. But which verse, and why? This one popped out at me because of its literal and spiritual significance. David wrote it while being pursued by his son Absalom. His son’s intent was to kill him and reign unopposed.

The year-long silence is broken! For the scant few who follow my blog, you may have received notifications of new (old) posts showing up. If so, my apologies. I’ve decided to merge my poetry and food blogs into one, so that means posts you’ve likely never read are now sandwiched between those you have. Hooray?
