A Thought for Today
The best thing about being a dreamer is that you never have to
depend on dreams.
Rod is on the road for a
couple of weeks and will be back with you sometime during August.
EDGE OF THE EARTH
No man wants the hidden hand of
anything to be his pilot. He should set out on some journeys with only maps of his own
choosing; no compass but the one he carries in his head. Should he then sail beyond the
earth's edge it will be his business only.
At times I try to chronicle my life with the sea. I am not in love with any one ocean - it
would be hard for me to decide whether I like the light blue water off the coast of
Greece, the deep azure color found along the coast of Mexico or the blue-black water off
Fire Island best. Oceans are oceans and they draw me.
