Goodbye 2012, hello 2013. I say good riddance to 2012 and lets throw 2011 in there while we are at it. I’ve been stuck in a rut, not necessarily by choice, I have actually been held hostage for two years. I can blame anyone I want but the truth is I could have up and fought back at anytime, I didn’t.
It’s now or never, 10 years of set backs and frustration is enough for anyone. I had always known that by my birthday 2013 I would set off into the unknown void or suck it up, sell out, and go back to living a normal life. At this point I don’t know what the new year will bring but its either set a course for adventure or become a day sailor. There are so many if’s, and’s, and but’s that all I can do is point my nose into the wind and start beating . The war isn’t over but the biggest battle has begun, and I’m leading the charge.
I spent some quiet time this morning going over the last 10 years of my life in my head, then 20… WTF just happened? They say that youth is wasted on the young, the question is what is young? It’s far time I take my own advice and shit or get off the pot!
2013 brings me a half finished boat, still no ice box, water tank, engine, heat, or proper stove, …my life savings as of today is $2.00 and the lockers are near dry. One man might see this as the glass half empty, another the glass half full. The wiser man will simply see the opportunity to wet his thirst, pick up the glass and drink it all in.
If I’ve learned anything it’s that the time will never be right. The boat will never be finished, and you will never have enough money. Every time you prepare to set sail a storm will come marching in, face the storm… its nothing but allot of hot air. Happy New Years friend. 🙂
A man was to live in that egg-shell day and night, a mile from the shore…. Think of making your bed thus in the crest of a break er! To have the waves, like a pack of hungry wolves, eying you always, night and day, and from time to time making a spring at you, almost sure to have you at last.
