Things like scrubbing the hull of the sailboat..... and going windsurfing.
Fast forward 19 yrs later, and I'm once again riding the wind.
That first day back on the water early this fall was simply amazing. It was like reuniting with a child hood friend. A friend who had taken me under her wind and guided me those day, had helped me escape the life that had been chosen for me. The friend who helped me see that I could be good at something, helped me see outside of the boundaries that had been laid around me.
As exhilarating as that first day back on the water was though, the experience woke up a lot of sleeping emotions that I had no clue were still there. Once again, my old friend was helping me work through life!
The wind is a quite different up here in the mountains than the trade winds in the Caribbean, lots of gust and swirls, but, I'm thankful that I can get back out on the water.
I'm not that great at fishin', but maybe the kid has hope!
