About Country Claire

As a forever fan of Dolly Parton, I have found the lyrics to She’s An Eagle When She Flies almost describes me to a ‘t’ – perhaps the only word that does not fit yet, would be ‘wife’, yet, the rest is spot on… My favorite verse is this one:

A kaleidoscope of colors
You can toss her around and round
You can keep her in you vision
But you’ll never keep her down

She’s been there, God knows, she’s been there
She has seen and done it all
She’s a woman, she know how to
Dish it out or take it all
Her heart’s as soft as feathers
Still she weathers stormy skies
And she’s a sparrow when she’s broken
But she’s an eagle when she flies

A kaleidoscope of colors
You can toss her around and round
You can keep her in you vision
But you’ll never keep her down
She’s a lover, she’s a mother
She’s a friend and she’s a wife
And she’s a sparrow when she’s broken
But she’s an eagle when she flies

Gentle as the sweet magnolia
Strong as steel, her faith and pride
She’s an everlasting shoulder
She’s the leaning post of life
She hurts deep and when she weeps
She’s just as fragile as a child
And she’s a sparrow when she’s broken
But she’s an eagle when she flies

She’s a sparrow when she’s broken
But she’s an eagle when she flies
Oh, bless her, Lord
She’s an eagle when she flies

Of course there are other songs that come close; however, the above has always put me in the right frame of mind when I may have a little self doubt or perhaps when I am encoutering a less than pleasant situation.  I need to remind myself that I am an Eagle When I Fly… and music has always been a steady medium in which is gain strength from.

My other way is to write, to express and to interact.  I love people and yet, in the very same breath can say that there are moments in which I was on a far distant, deserted island with my thoughts… I find that writing has been a powerful method in which I can truly reflect.  I am always thinking and seeking to learn!  When I write, I find a new perspective.. in certain situations I can determine that I had erred and in other matters I can discern my next best act.  Some people read to relax, I write.

This blog is centered around me.. and the things I come across, find interesting or things that simply need another look.  I am publicizing this blog as my other one has become more personal involving another of which I choose to keep locked up.  I hope that those who have followed my other blog, will choose to snap this one up…
