Regardless of your particular beliefs, the Christmas season can be a time to pause, appreciate the good things from the past year, and learn from the not so good. Yes, 2020 has been a challenge, and especially sad for many families. I choose to focus on the good, be grateful for our well being and be optimistic about the year to come.
Here’s wishing you all a safe and wonderful 2021!
Life is a moving target. To live fully, one must constantly be adjusting their aim. Practice helps, but perfect aim, if achievable at all, comes late. I would never describe my life as uneventful or mundane. The watchword has been constant change, some minor and happening slowly, others fast and substantial. In any event, it has been an interesting ride – so far.
The latest significant change is my decision to sell Valinor II. That means taking off the skipper’s hat, but perhaps finding an occasional crew spot. My sailing career has been long and varied. I’ve first and foremost met and made good friends on the water throughout my travels. I’ve seen a lot of coastal US (east side), and spent many wonderful days exploring the remarkable Chesapeake Bay. It’s been a good run, and the destination has always been Valinor.
I trust there’s time for more adventures of some kind, and will share as they materialize …..
