Rigging is all down and in the shop so sailing’s out, weather sucks, so varnishing’s out.  Spent the afternoon tieing proper pulls for all the hooks, shackles and pelicans on the boat.

 

 

 

 

Old Age

 

The seas are quiet when the winds give o'er;

So calm are we when passions are no more.

For then we know how vain it was to boast

Of fleeting things, so certain to be lost.

Clouds of affection from our younger eyes

Conceal that emptiness which age descries.

 

The soul's dark cottage, batter'd and decay'd,

Lets in new light through chinks that Time hath made:

Stronger by weakness, wiser men become

As they draw near to their eternal home.

Leaving the old, both worlds at once they view

That stand upon the threshold of the new.

 

Edmund Waller. 1606–1687

Recap and an Invite

To those who have been following my blog and to those new to my musings let me begin this morning with a recap and an invite.My writings began as a means to clarify my thoughts while holding myself accountable for my plans. My internet connection is about to run out for this month so I don't want to spend time researching when I posted my first blog. Safe to say it was about five years ago.
