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.

I am serene and satisfied.
When birds fly and the
fishes swim as in fable,
For the moral is not far off;
When the migration
of the goose is significant
And has a moral to it;
When events of the day
have a mythological character
And the most trivial is symbolized….
Every incident is a parable of the Great Teacher.
