Thinking about all of you

I've been trying to read as many of your blogs as I can. I get through a few each day. Today I read several that talked about troubles with children. I hate the damn disease. It has always seemed so unfair that good people have to deal with something that takes those that they love away, either physically or mentally. There is nothing that can be done though until either the loved one comes to their senses or we come to ours. If I had a wish to be granted, it would be for all to live with peaceful comfort knowing that all the ones that we love are in the hands of the HP, as are we.

Things are going okay for me. I'm away from the things that make my life complex and insane. I just get up, work for 12 hours, and then read or talk with people on board. It's a much less complex life out here. I think that there are so many things that interrupt us and come at us in all directions when we are in the usual universe of our lives. I'm in a reduced universe right now and like it. But it isn't real and I'll have to get back to the rat race soon enough. Until then, I'll savor as much of this as I can. Life on 157 feet of ship narrows down the options.


  1. oh if only we could all narrow down our options more often huh?
    I appreciate the feel you shared..not having much complexity in your day on sea.Mind you ..twelve hours is a long day.
    As for children with drug and alcohol issues,I responded to your comment on my blog and I will share here with you Syd that as long as parents are willing to become more honest with themselves as desperation sets in ..there will be found in each of us strength and hope.I am grateful my kiddo is ok today.And that is all I can hope!(one day at a time right?)
    I appreciate all the compassion and hope you share here Syd.
    Thanks for being you!

  2. Thanks for your comment, I really need all the support I can get.

  3. Once again, I have ship envy. That sounds so wonderful.

  4. Yeah that's it. I think I have ship envy too! I wish today my life was uncomplex, but I guess I'm in the process of learning another life lesson.
    I thank you again for your soothing and loving comments to me, it means more than you know...

  5. Syd,
    It's nice to get away for a little while from the rat race..Gives you time to think about your life and goals.
    It is unfair that good people have to suffer needlessly because of someone's addiction...unfair for the drug addict as well. They wish they never started...they know too well the misery they are going through and the hell they have caused for themselves and their family.
    All we can do is pray and hang tough!
    Thanks for your kind words.

  6. Wow what a great discovery your blog is. I saw your pic on 1/2 nAAked and followed it over. I thought maybe you just taking a cruse on an ugly boat...:+)

  7. Wow. You "get it" don't you? Thank you for taking the time to check in on me. Me? Im never going to give up. At least not for today!! I am trying to feel comfortable learning a program, making it work for ME.

    I am just grateful to other bloggers out hter like you who share and make it feel a little more ok for me.

    Be good my friend.


  8. Yeah, thanks for some reminders of life at sea. It's a closed universe where life is simple and it only takes about 3 seconds for a rumor to travel the length of the boat for all to hear.
    And I'm sure you're right about the boat you're on being a former oilfield supply vessel. There were 1000's of them from the 70's & 80's that were converted for other use. Many were scrapped,; many went overseas for alternate duty.

  9. rockin back and forth with you at sea! SImple...I crave simple-
    I am so glad you are enjoying you time there . Thanks for your wish : )

  10. You know, I wonder if we all don't just overcomplicate our lives.


Let me know what you think. I like reading what you have to say.
