Jack and I found this sitting on a log during this morning’s walk. I usually call these child stones but this, well, this is a soul stone. A little over two inches in diameter it has been painted with great love. How long will it stay there?

Here’s a question. An article I’ve just read asks: if we can stockpile billions of dollars worth of nuclear weapons, why can’t we warehouse pandemic supplies, ppe’s, face masks, ventilators and so forth? We did once. Give me one good answer!

A storm always passes. Enjoy it while it lasts.

It’s Mother’s Day. The weather is flawless. Hope you’ve enjoyed it.

There is always a new flower to replace those now passed. Subtle, unobtrusive, this one is as important as any other.

Fred is a slightly-past middle age sailor / writer / photographer with plenty of eclectic hands-on skills and experiences. Some would describe him as the old hippy who doesn't know the war is over. He is certainly reluctant to grow up and readily admits to being the eternal dreamer. He has written several books including two novels, 'The Keeper' and 'Storm Ecstasy,' as well as 'The Water Rushing By', 'Sins Of The Fathers', 'The Magic Stick', as well as an extensive inventory of poetry, essays, short stories, anecdotes and photographs. His first passion is the ocean, sailboats, voyaging and all those people who are similarly drawn to the sea. He lives aboard 'Seafire' the boat he is refitting to go voyaging, exploring new horizons both inner and outer. This blog is about that voyage and the preparations for it. In spite of the odds against it, the plan is to sail away this fall and lay a course southward. If you follow this blog your interest may provide some of the energy that helps fuel the journey.

  1. Who needs masks when you can push a button and annihilate everyone at once. Much better than stockpiling masks when they won’t protect you. Is that a fair answer?

    1. Yep, that’d be sterile, nuke ’em! One reader commented that pandemic supplies can go stale-dated. I replied that nuclear weapons are regularly upgraded.
      Trump em all!
