I put a category on the website call Perspectives because I thought there would be all this time to meditate on life as we drifted down the coast on Adesso. Quite the opposite has been my experience, not that I don’t have daily surprises, thoughts, even preponderance’s but to have time to put that to “web” (that would be pen in the olden days) – well only if I were to forgo sleep. So this is my first (short) perspective. Every day is full of the new, vignettes stand out but in truth just a stream of images, thoughts, which upon reflection are associated with me but actually are experienced more like a dream with “me” in it. The new is more overwhelming and varied than “I” can imagine. Yesterday we sailed into the land of sea otters, humpbacks passed , even an orca swam beside us as we motored into Monterey; who’s shores are painted with “us”. I remember walking in the Banking district downtown San Francisco and pass, along with everyone else, an unconscious homeless man sprawled in the middle of the sidewalk ; could have been dead for all I know; and a stream of humanity moved by, in a different world. I wonder how much of life is lived in a different world.
First thoughts are: how lucky and thankful I am to have followed the fork in the road sending us off on the Adesso Adventure. That adventure is a story that can only be lived.
