Heading Out to Sea

“Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than those you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the wind in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
— Mark Twain


I watched this ship heading out into the Gulf of Mexico on a windy, rainy, foggy afternoon. A low-pressure weather system camped in northern Mexico produced several days of high winds and thunderstorms. Yet the ships still sailed.


  1. One of my favourite songs is “Seascape” by Amazing Blondel…

    “Wistfully watching I wonder
    As ships go out to sea
    At mariners yonder
    And how their lives must be.
    With oceans to wander coves of tranquillity
    Oh none could be fonder
    Of his sailor’s life than he.”
