04 November 2010 | En Route Opua Day 5
Feeling a tad melancholy today, so those who sign on for the odd and curious may be disappointed. Second thought, given usual content here, what follows will be odd and curious.
Passage from one place to another can be difficult. Leaving what you know to strike out into the unknown can bring excitement, but is sure to bear uncertainty. There will be new territories to explore, new pitfalls to avoid and just possibly new ways to find your place in the universe. Change is stressful, unreliable and fraught with danger, but is avoided at even greater peril. It is a defining characteristic of life.
The last two years have been an amazing adventure. Some of the irony, anomaly, beauty and wonder of the experience have been herein described, often with a slightly peculiar twist. It has been an expression of delight. This will not be the last dissemination in this series of twaddle (no booing), but suspect that in the interlude from cruising, while hiding in New Zealand from Pacific cyclones for perhaps five months, a respite from writing will also occur. Such prediction has, to the chagrin of many, proved unfounded in times past and perhaps may again. Such will be revealed in the fullness of time.
