Back to sailing in Greece – and this time for real 🙂
With our newly acquired sail boat, we are now sailing all on our own among the Greek islands, my wife an I and our three boys. The word Tranquility comes to mind. It’s something else to be so close to the forces of nature and not go against it like with a motor boat, but instead be one with those forces.
Being at sea is great, being on the islands is great. Handling the boat goes better than expected. It’s pure pleasure. This easter is a family-only trip. During July, we will have several friends visiting as we take the boat for a four week stint. The rest of the time, the boat is hired out to anybody wanting to go sailing in Greece (with or without sailing experience). Yeah, tell me if you want a piece of Tranquility.
The boat’s name is Orama – a dream almost out of reach that is nevertheless reached. She’s a 47,3 foot beauty, majestically gracing the seas. Although my father was a seaman all his life, I never previously envisioned myself as one. I never knew what I missed out on. I am having realizations about life and the universe as I contemplate Quantum Mechanics while looking out over the ocean. Coupled with love for family, friends and Nature, this experience gives rise to another book project.
I am a work in progress and I gather inspiration from anywhere I can. From comments on this blog included.
