We’ve seen a lot of water pass beneath our keel and been seduced by the ocean’s many moods. At times it had been silken and seductive; at others it turned pewter gray and unyielding. Some days it danced and sparkled like a glo-mesh dress. There were occasions when the ship’s wake with its flurry of whitecaps resembled Hokusai’s iconic print The Great Wave off Kanagawa, and others when it looked black and unfathomable. The ship’s wake also provided an endless pattern on which to meditate or just bliss out.
Wishing you fair winds and following seas.
