You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Very nice video Giu - looks like you had a wonderful day on the water with family. It brought a smile to my face on this post-Easter Monday.

It's funny how so many people take CCR's rain song literally, as well as hundreds of other songwriters and poets. "The rain falling on a sunny day", is a metaphor for some form of misfortune, in this case, hardship is a precipitate.

However, applying that analogy to your video is a difficult notion to sell - especially while the temps in Newport are in the 40's right now .

TB, well..first I really really love CCR, I believe them to be one of the best bands ever made, pure simple good and not pretentious, I also Like Lynyrd Skynyrd, same type of feeling they give me..one of my all favorite songs in life is CCR's Fortunate Son, (I also like Sultans of Swing, from the Dire Straits but don't have enough videos for a 12 minute song ehehehe)

second, the song was taken EXACTLY as you describe...see, the week before I was in Canada, in the snow, and grey skies, and away from the family...so I got sad...
This song, and the images of sailing show just that...there is allways sunshine before and after a storm...so I chose it because I know you guys are suffering from the weather...it was my way of saying..hang on...there will be sun and good weather soon, and you will be doing this too in no time...that's what I meant..so you did capture what I meant in a clever manner.


It's far from me rubbing in the fact that I was sailing and you guys weren't, absolutely not...

Giu,
I thought that's what you meant - since it's one of the most common and well-used poetic metaphors . . . just pointing out what seems to be a common mis-interpretation. "Who'll Stop the Rain" was another CCR song using that analogy.

I have many fond memories from the late 60's - early 70's of Creedence Clearwater Revival "remake" songs, like - "I Put a Spell On You" and that very long jam - "I Heard it Through the Grapevine". Cosmo's Factory, their all time best album, was one of the first from my vinyl collection to be replaced by a CD back in the late '80s.

Again - it's a wonderful video and thanks for sharing.

First, nice video editing. Second, you should get some paint on those decks. They look like bare wood. I worry sun & salt water will damage them! Third, I'll have you know our lake is 80% de-iced and daily high temps are mostly above freezing. Pity about the water level -- I found out today the BLM hasn't put ANY water into the lake for TEN YEARS.

I also found out where the sluice gates are that fill it. So me, a can of Liquid Wrench, and a six-foot cheater bar are going for a little walk someday soon. How long before someone notices, do ya think? I'll post from federal prison if they let us have internet. Cheers and thanks for the video!
