Calm Seas

That brings me to the end of these recollections. I will conclude with this. Most people enjoy the pleasure and prospect of a peaceful and orderly life. That concept always fled from me as an idea I was frankly frightened by. I’ve lived my life as if in a storm at sea, with the important things to remember being, stay calm, remain steady, and most importantly, hang on. Storms at sea usually conclude with the dawning of a crystal-clear morning of glassy calm water, deceptively concealing any clue of the tempest that has passed. I am looking forward to that morning, but in the meantime, I may take time to do something unexpected.
