There are long swells coming in from offshore today. These are from the hurricane that is moving toward the East. I am hopeful it stays out to sea.
I stayed awake much of the flood tide last night because it was so uncomfortable to roll back and forth in the berth. Around the boat I could hear the dolphins exhaling. It is mating time and they are busy. It's comforting to hear them. They seem to like the sailboat as they come close by, sometimes looking at me or the boat.
This morning I am going to sail up river away from the swells. And then come back down river on the ebb tide. There is plenty of wind. I learn something new about the water every time I am out.
I also learn something new about myself through every circumstance. I am grateful to still be learning. I may be let down by my own defects but every situation helps me to see things a bit clearer. Each of you provides another lens through which I can sharpen my focus. Thank you for that.
