Adventures of s/v WILD HAIR


Our land life took on form, solidity, routine. We had mastery of a limited set of skills. We had habitual expectations of others and ourselves. Going sailing, we let go of our attachments to our roles, views, and rituals. We persist because we are growing in this shapeless and dynamic world.

The Almighty has played the old joke of
taking away the chair on which you were going to sit every day….
The truth is that you have landed on another reality.
You are bewildered, your consciousness flustered….
Even if you do not understand it,
know that what has happened to you is something marvelous.
You are no longer the same as you were moments ago
and, if you are wise enough, you will never be.
Other things matter now.
You will climb other mountains.
You will face other demons.
Other brothers will walk along with you.
Live your new life. Look with new eyes.
Nevertheless, be prepared to be reborn. Again.
Only by doing so will you be able to reach the end of the way.

L.E. Schultz
