Lies a calm along the deep,
Like a mirror sleeps the ocean,
And the anxious steersman sees
Round him neither stir nor motion.
Not a breath of wind is stirring,
Dread the hush as of the grave-
In the weary waste of waters
Not the lifting of a wave.
-Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Translated by Theodore Martin
when you are in deep, you realize much of the value of a boat it that it is the physical manifestation of your dreams. it is something you can touch that supports your imagination.
all those adventures you held in your head are now doable if you are up to the task.
there are no more excuses.
