I figure that money is just a tool. You use it to fix what needs fixing in your life. Some people have a whole bag of tools that get used regularly, busted, broken, but used, and they add more tools as they need them. Others think that someday they may build something, maybe when they retire , so they work their ass off to buy all sorts of tools and set up an incredible workshop for that retirement project. The uspide of using your tools now is that you're actually using them. nobody knows what is gonna happen tomorrow. there are a lot of immaculate well equipped workshops out there being liquidated by kids who bitch about how little they saw their dad while he was working so hard to buy the tools. And now he's gone.

okay, so the metaphor gets a little strained, but you get my drift. Some people use their tools, some people save their tools, and some people are just tools.

My kids ain't gonna inherit much but memories and stories that we built with that little bag of tools.

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.

Nice of you all to share your experience and perception. Seek happiness in life, be happy with what you find. Count your blessings. None of us lives forever. I've a loving wife, a great boat, and a cat on my lap. Can a man ask for more? (no, the wife and boat are NOT on my lap, only the cat)

i2f, thanks for sharing your story- and that's excellent news about your recovery! I'm glad it's all working out.

Your story, as well as this awesome community here, have lit a bonfire under my rear to get my act together. I am proud to say I'm actively planning to sail bluewater, instead of just keeping the dream on the bucket list. You guys have saved one more concrete jungle monkey!

PS- wonderful pic of you and Melanie watching the storm...
