Restful Rotations

Take rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop.

- Ovid (43 BC - 18 AD)

Restful Rotations

Inspired by Ovid's (43 BC - 18 AD) quote, "Take rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop". The titled responsion plays off of the Nike "Just do it!" slogan and the words of Yoda with Ovid's prescription for restful growth.

Ovid - planksip
Ovid Roman poet who lived during the reign of Augustus. He was a contemporary of the older Virgil and Horace, with whom he is often ranked as one of the three canonical poets of Latin literature.

This agrarian allusion is exactly what the meta is for! This "metaphor" should resonate with readers even if their way of life is far from a crop. The "restful rotation", that I am referring to is nicely illustrated in the article's feature meme with the broken wagon wheels and taking time to confront your daily grind some deliberate rest time.

Looking closer, the propped-up wagon wheels are more of a display intended to romanticize the extreme hardships of yesteryear, however, the reality of this nostalgic privilege of ordered arrangement is certainly temporary if, what we know is coming is considered in our daily "work". Will there be time to rest? Perhaps too much time if humanity disappears.
