Re: Sailing on network TV! "Chasing Shackleton" on tonight!
Thanks for the heads up on this. It is the ultimate story of human perseverance and survival. Last week I considered the contrast with this experience vs the ships recently stuck on ice in the Antarctic. In Shacketons day, one waited it out until the thaw, totally self sufficient. Be a year or so before they realized you were missing, another to finance, equip, and come looking for you!
By then you either trekked out on your own (in the artic) or in 100 years they find your graves on some forbidding shore
In the end all that matters is how fully you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things that did not belong to you -Buddha
