Re: What kind of work do you do to finance your sailing?
As a retired high school teacher I must be in a minority. One of my best writers became a welder so that he could have time to write.
I encouraged any post secondary education, especially the trades. I want the gas fitter who plumbs my house to be really smart.
In my experience, that would definitely put you in the minority Jack. In my day, academics were the ONLY really acceptable education path - not going to college was perceived as failure.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
