It seems Heather is soon to be a published magazine author! Cruising World Magazine has agreed to purchase one of her articles: Transitioning to a Life at Sea. The publication date has yet to be announced.
In the article Heather discusses how to sustain enthusiasm for a cruising life when personal mechanical, navigational, and boat handling shortcomings emerge. She gleaned a handful of insights on this topic by 1) being less than completely skilled and 2) meditating on the subject as part of her Buddhist practice. She offers these insights and herself as an example to all who have experienced a sense of inadequacy afloat!
