A Quote from OG

To quote one of my online sailing friends, OG from LiveSailDie: (this was written on Friday May 12th and was probably originally intended for some other purpose, however it seems perfect for this situation...)
To feel the wind in your hair and the salt on your face is one of the most exhilarating experiences one could ever be succumbed to. Sailing into the sunset with the horizon your destination truly provides a sense of living. When no one else can be seen, no land, birds or passing ships, you know you are experiencing one of the many wonders the sea and the world has to offer…

Sadly, not everyone can enjoy this natural pleasure…

It has been a rough few months of horrible experiences, and just again today, additional bad news was cast my way. More tears fell from eyes that once glistened in the day and moonlight and the statement “if only” again passed through my mind.

Life is too short to stay dry…

Life is too short to stay grounded…

Life is too short to stay on your island so please sail the waters in and surrounding your land.

Talk of times on the water, and share with land dweller the joy of the sea. Pass on wisdom of the winds and stories of knowledge of nautical ways…

For there are far too many in this crazy mixed up world who live and die but never experience the pleasure of sail…

So please… Live each day… Sail the Seas… Then, and only then, should you rest your head and Die…
