I love sailboats, both the kind that float in a tub and on big water.
About twenty years ago a friend and I took a sunset cruise on a sailboat off the coast of Bayfield, Wisconsin. It was invigorating, mysterious – I think there was a little mischievousness mixed in too. Come to think of it, that was the weekend I met Mason Williams of Classical Gas fame too. All around a fabulous trip.
What I love most about sailboats is how the invisible propels the visible. As a writer, I feel that putting words to paper is a bit like sailing. You can plan what you want to say, but the mind, (much like the wind) that invisible mechanism responsible for so much in this world, takes you places that sometimes surprises you as you write.
Two of my favorites quotes are from the writer of “Little Women.” Louisa May Alcott. I think she understood the parallels too between sailing and writing.
“I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship.”
Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.”
