So let us hoist sail and be about the businessof finding our way. There is still time to attend to the miracle of each dayand consider what it can teach us of matters eternal. If we aresufficiently attentive, we may even discover a star of our own making,that we might trust in our primal nature and revel in the curling waves,ourselves barefoot, observant, and wind-burned in the afternoon sun.Every journey is but a prelude to the next- so come join us all ye dreamersdreamers, gypsies, and vagabonds! The lights begin to twinkle from afar,and the evening star shines high to the east.--------Jeanine and Matts are lifelong sailors.
