Saturday Friends on the Water

A  L  O  H  A !
"Adopt the pace of nature: 
her secret is patience."

'The Admiral'
“Damn the torpedoes! 
Full speed ahead!”
           Admiral David G. Farragut 

'Cadet Corps' Young Mallards

“He enjoyed long stretches 
of pure delight such 
as only a seaman may 
know, and moments of high, 
proud exultation that only 
a discoverer can experience”
                 Samuel Eliot Morison 

“hark, now hear the sailors cry, 
smell the sea, and feel the sky 
let your soul & spirit fly, 
into the mystic...” 
                     Van Morrison

This blog is
for me a
mystical experience.

It is connection.
It is meaning.

It is YOU
and me.

When I found the
Van Morrison lyric,
and placed it under
the last photo,
I cried a little bit.

It felt so perfect!

Silly Me.

Silly You.

Thanks for Being
                          Warmly, cloudia

You made me go look up "Into the Mystic". Don't think I've ever heard it. The video is like looking at a months' worth of your blog pictures.
