The Gentle Rhythm Of Life

This week Boston was overtaken by Sail Boston mania.  Let me explain.  Every couple of years, the navies of the world send their most beautiful tall ships to Boston.  The ships are open for viewing and visiting.  They are usually filled with charming young men hawking all sorts of great things like wine.

The year I got to go on three of the ships that came for Sail Boston.  First, was the Union ship from Peru.  Then there was the Esmeralda that floated over here from Chile, a country I love.  Of course I boarded the ship and vocally voiced my undying love for that country.  The third was a US Coast Guard vessel that boasted a flag the size of your average football field.  Nah, I’m kidding.  But the thing could have easily covered half of a football field.

I observed a kind of gentle rhythm of life on the boats.  Jobs were done but there was also a palpable excitement on board each of the vessels.  I enjoyed how the sailors were so eager to answer questions and so nice about answering them.  I don’t know how I’d feel after answering the same questions over and over but the guys I saw on the ships, they didn’t seem to mind.  Just a part of the rhythm of life for them.

To a great Sail Boston week!!!!!
