I was writing a piece for my blog about our millennium cruise and, in particular, the final sunset of the millennium which I had filmed from our anchorage at an uninhabited cay in the Exumas.
I was rooting through miles of tape trying to find the specific footage when I realized that my audience would have no idea when the sunset was filmed. I have a million sunsets on film, like any other sailor! I have sunsets from all over the world. They all look the same! How could you tell if my 'millennium sunset' was filmed on that momentous day or a week earlier, or a month later?
There must be a Zen saying that covers this. 'If the sunset at the end of a millennia.............' Any ideas?
But YOU will know. And that will eat at you every time you see a sunset. Knowing you were deceptive. Karma is a B iatch and will hunt you down and find you!
