my incredible adventure leaves me with the question - and wondered if it effects others as well. does the risk of damage, something screwing up, make anyone but me think twice when they leave the harbor? for most sailing folks, sailing is a hobby, and most people use their boats a couple of weeks a year. if they have a disaster they might have a few bills, but as long as everyone is safe it's a headache and no more. but if you screw up with your home, you risk losing a lot.
I try to keep this short. And really hope people see what I say. Guess we all see things from different perspectives.
I think of the material, but, only more of others. It would kill me to ram a boat and sink it. But, sink my own holds a different thought. I can replace what "I" lose in time.
My dad always taught me to think safety first. I remember once where he worked the building was a fire. His concern was getting the workers out. The result, he got pinned when the building collapse. He lived, some broke ribs and looked like an over cooked marshmallow for a long time.
I do think safe, but, where do we draw the line. Do we live without Airplanes because a person was safe? Do we not know the Americas are here because someone was safe?
We enter the challenge set before us! We think safe! But, we try to subdue what is given!
True, sometimes we lose. But, what when we win! Man, you the "Top Dog" tonight. You took the Bull by the Horns!
This what it all about. I have lost family and friends to similar challenges. They did what they enjoyed! I not think the least of what you did. Some may feel different. It so enjoyed the Video. And, my woman said you crazy when I showed her. So, that good!
It was just "you"! (Well the dog, just better hope PETA not see)
It your dream! Go for it!
I go to sea and people think I crazy! Dang, when I come back, their eyes show how they wish!
You just on the stepping stones. Reach for what you want. It there my friend.
Give me the Horizon and no land in sight! Give me the Storm of passion! I will head into it!!!! Because it my challenge, it my love!
True, one day I probably get drowned by a "Rouge Wave", but, if I going to die? Let me die in the embrace of my love. Not in a hospital bed!
You really not understand how much I enjoyed your video! You the Dog today! Hold it in your heart all your life!
