I haven't been here long but I have learned to respect your knowledge and opinions. Fair winds and a wish for smooth sailing until your return.

CD,
I've experienced some unexpected winds lately as well which have really blown me off course, so - will need to focus more intensely on some issues which have not been planned for.

The outlook I always take is to find the advantages of these misfortunes - they are there if you look hard enough - then benefit by channeling all available energy and resourses to that new course. I sense you have taken similar measures and wish you all the best with your mission.

CD - You'll come out on top! And you'll be back soon enough. I hope you continue writing those great cruising stories for magazines, too.

Your situation (which we can all find ourselves in often enough to one degree or another) reminds me of a great saying, one that I believe someone on this forum has or had as part of their signature:

THE PESSIMIST CURSES THE WIND,
THE OPTIMIST HOPES THAT IT WILL CHANGE,
THE REALIST ADJUSTS HIS SAILS...

My apologies to the originator, as I have more than likely butchered it. CD, as a sailor I've always figured you as the realist. I would imagine you are the same way in all other aspects of your life. I hope your current life sail adjustments get you to your destination quickly.

As many have said, it is usually perceived misfortune that redirects us in life. Nothing else appears strong enough to do it, only to find that through it all we emerge in a better place, all the while making us stronger for having gone through it.

You had helped me many times we answers to probably alot of "stupid questions" never making me feel stupid. For that I thank you and look forward to your return to the site

Just remember to make time for the sea. A sail no matter how short will put you in a better place.
