Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Quote attributed to Mark Twain


My ocean held in place on the shoulders of the sky,

The wind blows freedom to all who ask why,

The ebb and flow continues strong with the tide,

Its horizons do end with every movement of the eye…


The palm fronds sway,

With a wind that blows one away,

Blowing on the streets of injustice,

Creating a reality from deep in the abyss…


The sea, yes it does, it does belong to me,

I need its nurturing touch, its medicinal Nature,

Its taste to the skin, like to the taste buds a chablis,

To the olfactory my ocean does present a potpourri,

Once sensed, no turning back from its spiritual aroma,

It is there for you to see, but my ocean, my sea,

She does belong forever to me…

She's a grand mistress, and she truly misses you.

So - throw off those bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor, catch those trade winds in your sails - Explore. Dream. Discover - before it's too late, little brother.

I can understand that, Ed. Brilliantly put, actually, and I do like it when you decided to get serious, you just don't seem to want to do that often. There was meat to this one, much meat.
