"If a man does not know to what port he is steering, no wind is favorable to him."
-Seneca (Roman philosopher and advisor to emperor Nero)
I was in such a good rhythm with my blog postings, cruising along with 1-3 posts per week. But suddenly, I no longer knew which port I was steering towards. Then I hit an uncharted shoal and grounded out for a while. It seems an eventful summer was the shoal that put me in this unforeseen blogging sabbatical.
I’ve missed writing and developing my thoughts here on SailFarLiveFree.com, which makes it even more confounding that I can’t fully explain why it’s taken me so long to get back to writing.
Perhaps the biggest event to report from this summer is the sale of s/v Island Bound and the subsequent purchase our 3rd cruising sailboat (more about that later!). In any case, I’m officially back at the helm of this blog so we can shove off again with new material.
|A sneak peek at our new boat|
In the coming weeks and months I have lots of great gear reviews to share. I also plan to write about perspectives on sailing with an 18 month old and practical lessons learned from selling and purchasing sailboats. Sometime soon I’ll mix in an ode to Island Bound. And of course, there will be more random thoughts about cruising, water and life. Lastly, I’ll continue to break things up with a weekly “Picture This” post that’s at least vaguely related to sailing.
So thank you for your patience! We’ll now return to our regularly scheduled programming...
