Finally got both sails up, jib and main. There is nothing like sailing solely by the wind–no engine–the complete silence–only the sound of the water against the hull and the luff of a sail. Dolphins rode our wake. Makes me wish I was younger, less fat, more agile–but oh so glad that I get to experience all this stuff.
My other “passion” is writing and so I must liken sailing to that art–it is a sole-ful thing. As in sailing, there is a silence as loud as the thoughts between the writer and the page.
Both  demand the full attention of the purest form of grace I possess.
